The last few years have seen the implementation of a number of initiatives that have had a positive impact on the environment and include; • the virtualisation of servers; • the replacement of all halogen globes with LED ones; • the installation of lighting control systems; • the conversion of T8 fluorescent tubes to T5; • the implementation of a follow me print solution; • and more recently the implementation of a trial paper lite initiative within a practice group. Led by our Pro Bono leadership team, we promote access to justice by identifying key areas of unmet legal need, and building and maintaining expertise in those areas. Over many years, RK’s Pro Bono Practice has developed expertise in legal issues affecting asylum seekers and refugees. We believe strategic litigation is essential to achieving our goals in this sector. In the last 5 years we have run three major test cases: SZQRB v Minister for Immigration and Citizenship [2012] FCA 1053, [2013] HCATrans 323, M64 v Minister for Immigration and Border Protection [2015] HCA 50 and BMF16 v Minister for Immigration and Border Protection [2016] FCA 1530. We have strong links to community organisations such as the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, the Refugee Council of Australia and the Unaccompanied Humanitarian Minors Consortium. RK is a key member of the LIV’s Legacy Caseload Working Group which was established to respond to the access to justice crisis facing around 25,000 “Legacy Caseload” asylum seekers whose applications were “frozen” when they arrived in Australia between 31 August 2012–31 December 2013. In May 2017, this Working Group was awarded the Access to Justice Award at the LIV’s 13th Victorian Legal Awards.
