The Victorian Bar has recently held the 2023 Pro Bono Awards which recognises barristers who make an outstanding contribution representing parties on a pro bono basis.
Young’s List congratulates Peter Willis SC, Matthew Albert, Angel Aleksov and Young’s List barrister, Evelyn Tadros for being awarded the Pro Bono Team Excellence Award for outstanding achievement in pro bono advocacy. The team (led by Justin Gleeson SC of the New South Wales Bar in the High Court) was nominated for their dedicated work in complex litigation on behalf of Mr Shayne Montgomery, a First Nations man of the Mununjali Peoples who was being held in immigration detention pending deportation, resulting in his release when (following oral argument in the High Court, but before judgment) the Commonwealth Government withdrew its challenge.
We congratulate all the winners and nominees for improving access to justice for our community.
To brief Evelyn please contact Tammy Young on (03) 9225 6777.
