Ebony is a member of Slater and Gordon’s Class Actions team with particular experience litigating complex public interest cases, often involving claims on behalf of refugees, or cases involving institutional abuse or failures in medical care. Over the past three years Ebony has played a major role in the Manus Island class action and has also been an active member of Slater and Gordon’s Pro Bono Committee. More recently she has played a key role in Slater and Gordon’s pro bono work in relation to the 2014 Department of Immigration data breach.
Outside of her work with Slater and Gordon, Ebony is completing her PhD in Human Rights Law, and helps run a secondary school in a remote region in Tanzania. Both these ventures relate to her passion for promoting the right to education worldwide, particularly for young women.
Ebony is an experienced researcher and is often invited to present at legal seminars and events, or to teach and advocate on behalf of refugees.
Ebony’s time working with Slater and Gordon has been rewarding for her and she takes great pride in working for a firm which protects the rights of all people.
