Caxton has a proud history, stretching over several decades, of taking on a wide range of important cases.

Some of these matters have included:

  • consumer cases against banks
  • discrimination claims on behalf of underpaid Aboriginal workers
  • discrimination claims on behalf of deaf children
  • representation for public protestors
  • deaths in custody inquests.

Casework is resource intensive and is therefore available only in limited circumstances. Guidelines for undertaking ongoing casework and representation are available from the centre.

A Duty Lawyer Service is available to assist clients on the day of their appearance in the Family Court or Federal Circuit Court or self-represented respondents for appearances in the Brisbane Magistrates Domestic Violence Court.
