The Top End Women's Legal Service (TEWLS) seeks an experienced solicitor (3 years PAE+) to join our vibrant team and help the service develop, deliver and lead a new migration law practice.
In 2021, TEWLS was invited to deliver the Temporary Visa Holders experiencing violence pilot project (the Pilot) in the Northern Territory. The Pilot aims to achieve positive outcomes for families, women and their children by working across sectors to improve the safety and wellbeing of children, advancing gender equality and reducing violence against women and their children, and will run for an initial period of 12 months.
