Pallavi shortlisted as a finalist in ‘Diversity and the Law’ at the Australian Migration and Settlement Awards , 2014
Pallavi Sinha, a migrant lawyer, migration law lecturer at the Australian National University and an accredited mediator and counsellor is actively involved with the Indian subcontinent community for over two decades now.
Although she is born and brought up in Australia, but her Indian background has much impact on her and that is the reason she has a soft corner for the community. She has been actively involved with the Indian subcontinent community and broader ethnic community for over 20 years.
Recently Pallavi Sinha was the only individual shortlisted as a Finalist in the category Diversity & the Law at the Australian Migration & Settlement Awards in 2014.
Pallavi has been working in the area of migration law for about nine years. She also teaches migration law at Australian National University. She is actively involved in the community raising awareness of the law and social justice issues in roles such as a People of Australia Ambassador, the only person from NSW elected to the Federation of Ethnic Communities Council and the youngest person appointed to the Indian Ministerial Consultative Committee.
Pallavi was flown to Canberra and the ceremony was held at the Great Hall, Parliament House on 24 March.
The Keynote speaker was the Prime Minister Tony Abbott. Guests included Federal Ministers, the Opposition Leader Bill Shorten and Shadow Ministers, Chief Justice of the High Court, head of UNHCR and Amnesty International.
A show reel was broadcast on a big screen about Pallavi’s work. The other two finalists were the Family Court and Legal Aid. The Award was presented by the Chief Justice of the Family Court to the Chief Justice of the Family Court.
