We don't have any current job opportunities for the Human Rights Law Centre.

 

Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us and supporting human rights. Regrettably, we are only able to take on a very limited number of volunteers due to capacity and office space issues. We want to make sure that our volunteers are properly supervised and have interesting, challenging work.

We are not currently taking on any volunteers or interns. We do not have the capacity to take on high school work experience placements.
