Amy is our Managing Lawyer. Amy has extensive community law experience. Prior to joining the team, she was a Senior Associate at Salvos Legal Humanitarian, where she provided pro bono legal representation to vulnerable clients in the areas of migration and refugee law, criminal, care and protection, family, housing, debt and employment law. She regularly represented victims of modern slavery and advocated for legislative and policy reform in the area.
In 2017, Amy was awarded ‘Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year’ at the Lawyers Weekly Women in Law Awards. In 2018, Amy was awarded a John Monash Scholarship, Australia’s most prestigious scholarship for overseas postgraduate study. She undertook her Masters of Law at Georgetown University in Washington DC, researching practical strategies to improve access to justice for the ‘missing middle’, including through the use of ‘low bono’ law firms. Upon her return to Australia, she worked as a legal consultant on a project to review Australia’s access to justice landscape and possible strategies to make civil legal services more accessible to Australia’s missing middle.
