USQ Law Society Migration Law Seminar

9 September 2021 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Please join us as we welcome Ms Ann-Louise Shrapnel (Anni), a USQ alumnus who has rich experience working in migration law.
We will go over what migration law is, the life of a migration lawyer, and how USQ students can prepare for a career in migration law. Hint: The first step is to take Administrative Law.

Ann-Louise Shrapnel (Anni)  is a humanitarian immigration lawyer who has worked with refugees and asylum seekers for the past 5 years. Anni has worked for the Dignity Project and Salvos Legal Humanitarian where she assisted people, who arrived by plane or by boat, to apply for asylum here in Australia. Anni has acted in both merits review and judicial review matters in the AAT and Federal Circuit Court respectively. Between 2019 and 2020, Anni was the Assistant-Legal to the Deputy President of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal. Elements of this role included drafting decisions relating to visa cancellations. Visa cancellation decisions often result in judicial review proceedings due to their complex nature and ever-evolving case law. Anni will move to Europe in early 2022 to start a contract with the United Nations.

The seminar will be held over Zoom at 7pm Brisbane time on Thursday, 9 September 2021
