Why we Exist
The Human Rights Law Alliance exists to provide legal services in the area of freedom of thought, conscience and religion.
As a not-for-profit law firm with a Christian ethos, we work to ensure that all Australians can peacefully live out their faith and convictions both in private and in public without fear.
The freedom to believe lies at the core of all human rights and freedoms. Freedom of speech enables the communication of beliefs, whilst freedom of expression permits beliefs to be lived out in society. Freedom of association allows those of like-mind to form groups, communities and organisations governed by common conviction and to exercise those rights together.
In the Christian context, these freedoms enable belief in the Christian gospel to be spoken, shared, lived and therefore to promote the best interests of all Australians.
What we do
We provide legal assistance and representation for cases where people and organisations are in trouble with the law for living out their faith. By providing this practical help, we also set freedom-protecting legal precedents.
We provide our clients with legal advice in relation to existing law, as well as proposed changes to the law, and can represent those clients to present submissions to various governmental enquiries.
We provide training for students and practitioners, we equip lawyers to preserve and develop good law.
We are growing an alliance of lawyers and experts sharing their respective knowledge for the furtherance of these aims.
The Human Rights Law Alliance produces resources for faith-based organisations to better protect their freedoms.
