Human Rights

Mountain ranges | Shine Lawyers

Everyone deserves equal access to justice and the right to a ‘fair go’. If you have been wronged, we can help you make a stand and take action to achieve justice.

We have vast experience and a proven track record when it comes to human rights law - which is important to note if you're looking for someone to represent you in your case.

What is 'human rights' law?

You have the right to take action in cases of:

  • Civil and political rights
  • Asylum seeker rights
  • The environment and climate change
  • Indigenous rights and equality
  • Discrimination, including workplace or sexual discrimination
  • Cyber-racism and hate crimes
  • Coronial inquests
  • Protecting citizens’ rights against governments or corporations

Our human rights team can help simplify things and help you understand your rights to compensation.

Do I have a human rights claim?

We work on a No win no fee basis and you will only pay our fee if you win your case at the end of the claim.

Not only that, in some instances we’ll step in and provide legal services on a no-charge, or reduced-charge basis – this is known as pro bono.
