We use the law to empower communities seeking environmental justice.
We defend nature and safeguard our climate.
We support First Nations people fighting for Country and Culture.
CHALLENGING LAND CLEARING FOR COTTON IN THE NT

The Victorian coal pollution case
On behalf of Environment Victoria, we challenged Victoria’s EPA and Australia’s biggest energy companies – AGL, Energy Australia and Alinta.
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.
We use the law to protect and regenerate vital ecosystems on the brink of collapse.
We run public interest litigation and legal interventions to put justice at the heart of climate action.
FIRST NATIONS JUSTICE
We provide legal support to First Nations people fighting for Country and Culture.
For more than 30 years, we’ve been fighting for environmental justice.
We use a powerful combination of public interest litigation and legal advocacy campaigns to deliver long-lasting protections for nature and community.
We believe the law is a powerful tool.
We use it to set game-changing precedents.
We make companies and governments more responsible.
We make communities safer and fairer.
We keep our forests standing for generations to come.
We tackle the destructive and unjust systems that fuel the crises we face.
We seek action, solutions and justice.
Sometimes it takes many legal challenges to chip away at the status quo.
But sometimes, one landmark legal victory can change everything.
