About Us

Religious Australians are being increasingly targeted for their beliefs.

And with the failure of the Federal Parliament to pass laws to protect us from religious discrimination, many Christians wonder how they can protect their right to freely and peaceably practice their faith.

Doctors and other professionals now risk their careers when they stand up for what they believe.

Since 2019 we have worked to provide assistance, advice and advocacy to ordinary Australians under attack for living out their faith and convictions in public.

High profile cases of religious freedom are becoming more frequent, but for each one of these there are countless everyday Australians paying an unfair price for living out their faith in the public square.

That’s why HRLA works to ensure that all Australians can peacefully live out their faith and convictions without fear. We help to protect people’s rights to believe and live out their beliefs. The freedom to live according to your convictions lies at the very heart of all human rights and freedoms.

The Human Rights Law Alliance stands ready as Australia’s last line of defence in the war on faith. 


What we do


    We provide litigation assistance to people and organisations that are under attack for living out their faith. Through providing this help we also set freedom-protecting precedents.


    We provide our clients with legal advice concerning current and proposed laws, and represent clients presenting legal submissions to government enquiries.


    We provide training for legal practitioners through our specialist CPD courses to equip them to preserve and develop good law. We also provide training for law students through our holiday internship programs.


    We are growing an alliance of lawyers and experts sharing their expertise in support of protecting freedom of belief and conscience.


    We produce resources for people of faith and faith-based organisations to help them protect their freedoms and pursue their aims in accordance with their faith.
