Legal Aid

Legal assistance

With the support of an experienced international refugee lawyer we provide information, advice and emergency assistance to asylum seekers and refugees who may be unsure of their rights, or scared of what is happening. We also assist the most vulnerable members to prepare for UNHCR interviews and help draft their appeals. This program focuses only on the international legal process of seeking asylum and becoming a refugee.



Indonesian legal information sessions

Indonesian public interest lawyers volunteer their time to prepare and deliver information sessions about domestic Indonesian law, and answer questions about the legal system in Indonesia. This is a separate program to our international refugee law legal assistance listed above, which focuses on the process of applying to UNHCR to become a refugee under international law.
