Work & Volunteer Opportunities
23 January 2024
An opportunity has arisen to join one of Australia’s most unique and innovative legal centres. The Australian Centre for International Justice (ACIJ) is the first and only specialist legal centre in Australia working on international justice litigation, research and advocacy.
ACIJ was launched in 2019 to fill a large gap in legal services available to survivors of torture, war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity seeking access to justice and accountability in Australia. We work with victims and survivor communities and organisations to combat the impunity enjoyed by perpetrators of these crimes. Our primary aim is to develop Australia’s capacity to undertake investigations and prosecutions of international crimes, including under the principle of universal jurisdiction. In addition to our strategic legal work, ACIJ has a parallel policy and law reform program. Our work is informed by the values of justice, accountability, human rights, dignity, courage and solidarity.
The Senior Lawyer will join our small team and contribute to our legal work and advocacy across our major program areas.
This is a 12-month full-time fixed-term contract position and is based in Sydney.
Closing date for applications is Friday 9th February 2024, 11.59pm AEDT.
