Access to justice, legal innovation, community law, immigration and refugee law, slavery and trafficking law, Use of 'low bono' law firms to improve access to justice
Amy has a Bachelor of Arts with Honours and Bachelor of Laws with Honours from Monash University. She worked at Salvos Legal Humanitarian and was recently announced as the 2017 Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year at the Women in Law Awards. At Georgetown University she will research the growing use of social enterprise law firms to improve access to justice for individuals who are not eligible for legal aid but cannot afford a private lawyer. Amy then plans to develop and launch a similar program in Australia, which she hopes will also increase employment opportunities for graduate lawyers who aspire to work in humanitarian law.
