The Law Council of Australia has recognised UTS Law’s Professor Jennifer Burn for her outstanding work in Migration Law and her commitment to helping those most in need of legal assistance in this area – awarding her Outstanding Migration Lawyer of the Year at their 2020 conference. Considered Australia’s leading anti-slavery lawyer, Jennifer has spent her professional career working to abolish human trafficking and slavery in all its forms.

For the past 17 years, Professor Burn has headed up the organisation which became Anti-Slavery Australia (ASA) in 2011; a unique legal and migration centre within the Faculty of Law. The centre provides free legal and migration advice as well as representation for people who have experienced trafficking and slavery in Australia.
