Official opening of Law Centre – Jacqueline Kelly

 

 

 

The staff at the IRC would like to extend our thanks to Jacqueline Kelly for her work and determination in establishing the IRC’s Law Centre back in 2011. As a driving force behind the establishment of the Law Centre and its first Managing Solicitor, Jacki has always been a constant advocate for progress on the issue of providing legal advice and representation to asylum seekers at the earliest possible stage of the asylum procedure. The success of the IRC Law Centre, in all aspects, is a testament to her dedication.
