Available Positions

Please be patient with us while we process your application ...

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with ALI. We will advertise volunteer positions on this page as they arise. Applications for positions that we are currently not recruiting for will not be processed.


The Animal Law Institute is currently not seeking expressions of interest from lawyers. We will update this webpage once we are accepting expressions of interest.

Volunteer Lawyers must have a practising certificate in one Australian State or Territory (it does not have to be unrestricted) and will provide their services pro bono under ALI's professional indemnity insurance and be supervised by ALI's Principal Lawyer (you will not be operating under a firm's banner if you hold an employee practising certificate). Specific experience in one area including litigation is not required, however the Volunteer Lawyer must be passionate about animal welfare and willing to work as a team. ALI expects you to commit approximately 20–40 hours of pro bono assistance per year.  

We are unable to currently accept applications from lawyers in South Australia, unless you hold an unrestricted practising certificate.
