 Because this is about all of us.

We use the law to find solutions that work for all of us (not just some of us).

LIVING WONDERS LEGAL INTERVENTION

For the first time in Australian history, the Environment Minister is reassessing the climate impact of 18 new coal and gas projects currently on her desk.
This is a game-changing legal intervention by EJA lawyers for a community environment group.

OUR FOCUS

NATURE THRIVES

We use the law and community advocacy to protect and regenerate vital ecosystems on the brink of collapse.

CLIMATE JUSTICE

We run public interest litigation and legal interventions for a fast and fair transition from fossil fuels, and for climate solutions for all of us.

CLEAN AIR

We empower communities experiencing environmental harm to use the law to achieve environmental justice.

FIRST NATIONS JUSTICE

We provide legal support to First Nations people fighting for Country and Culture to secure justice.

OUR IMPACT

For more than 30 years, we’ve been fighting for environmental justice.

We’ve had some incredible successes inside and outside the courtroom for the people, places and wildlife we love.

HIGHLIGHTS

Living Wonders legal intervention

For the first time in Australian history, the Environment Minister is now reconsidering the climate impact of 18 new coal and gas projects – after a legal intervention by EJA lawyers for our client ECoCeQ. 

The Victorian coal pollution case

On behalf of Environment Victoria, we are challenging Victoria’s EPA and Australia’s biggest energy companies – AGL, Energy Australia and Alinta

WOTCH v VicForests

For a community group of citizen scientists, EJA lawyers are defending Victoria’s last remaining unburnt native forests – and the threatened animals that call them home. 

LEGAL CASES

“When governments fail to protect our threatened species, it falls to community groups and public interest lawyers to hold them to account in the courts.

As the extinction crisis accelerates, it’s vital that our environment laws work to protect what is left.”
