Edmund Rice Centre for Justice and Community Education (ERCJ) and DLA Piper are organizing a 5-week free Legal Empowerment Course for refugees, people seeking asylum and migrants. The purpose is to empower multicultural communities in NSW by increasing their core legal knowledge and associated skills. The program also aims to foster integration and encourage the participants to advocate for their own rights and interests as well as pursue professional and personal goals, using the information and techniques they learn during the sessions.


For refugees, asylum seekers and migrants, moving to a new country can be a daunting experience. Many have little understanding of their rights, which can lead to isolation, exploitation and difficulties adapting. We developed this program to support individuals in their resettlement and to partner with communities to support their integration.


Eligibility Criteria:

  1. A person with refugee or migrant background.
  2. Basic English.
  3. Can participate in all sessions.


What is the next step?

Once registration is completed. We will conduct a virtual meeting with the participants and discuss about the time and venue of the program. We will consider convenience for the participants.  

Venue and time:

The program will be conducted in Western Sydney area on weekends. The exact location, dates and time will be decided after consultation with the registered participants.
