Our barristers provide advice to and representation of claimants and respondent government entities in matters concerning the developing area of human rights in Queensland and discrimination. In keeping with Level Twenty Seven Chambers’ multi-disciplinary approach to casework, our barristers offer expertise in human rights matters that intersect with administrative & judicial review, commercial, health, and professional discipline & regulatory law.
Our barristers have assisted clients on pioneering cases addressing the application of the Human Rights Act (QLD) from objections to major mining & resource projects and their potential connection to climate change to the legality of the State accommodating maximum security prisoners in solitary confinement for extended periods.
In discrimination matters, Level Twenty Seven Chambers’ barristers act both for and against claimants. Our barristers have been involved in cases at all stages of dispute resolution in this area, from internal disciplinary proceedings and mediations, tribunals and commissions, through to the superior courts. Our barristers can also provide independent counsel to assist with internal investigations and audits of disciplinary or grievance procedures. Several of our barristers practising in this area are qualified mediators.
