"I love working with people who might otherwise not have access to the courts. Law should be about justice. It should be about holding people and corporations accountable for wrongdoing, and ensuring that those harmed are properly compensated,” says Lizzie.
Lizzie has been a lawyer for a decade and has local and international experience in a wide array of court jurisdictions, from the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal up to the High Court of Australia. She previously worked in our social justice practice where her cases included:
Lizzie’s international legal experience includes working at the International Labour Organisation in Geneva monitoring gender and racial equality in labour standards, as well working with indigent prisoners on death row in the USA. More recently, Lizzie completed her Masters in Law at Columbia University in New York, receiving a scholarship to focus on human rights and corporate accountability. She subsequently worked on projects that use digital technology to advance human rights. Lizzie is the author of a book on this topic, Future Histories, released in 2019. These international experiences have cemented Lizzie’s passion for righting injustices and ensuring corporations are held to account for breaches of the law.
