Immigration lawyers acting for asylum seekers are “unAustralian”.


Australians let us all rejoice
Immigration lawyers uphold the law
With frank and fearless legal advice
They assist people seeking safety at our shore
They provide an escape from persecution
To those who have so much to contribute and share
In the spirit of giving someone a fair go, they
Advance Australia Fair

Beneath our radiant Southern Cross
Immigration lawyers work tirelessly every day
In assisting those most vulnerable
To make an asylum claim to stay
Embodying the Australian Values Statement
They fight for what is compassionate and fair
In the spirit of egalitarianism and equality, they
Advance Australia Fair
