New Principal Solicitor for Redfern Legal Centre

After 14 years of steady leadership of the legal practice at Redfern Legal Centre, our Principal Solicitor, Elizabeth Morley is retiring.

We have been very lucky to have Elizabeth for so long, and over this time she has built many strong networks with our local community. At the same time she has always been a wise mentor and a source of comfort for the young solicitor who has casework anxieties, as well as a strong leader in the CLC network. We will certainly miss her and wish her all the best for her future endeavours and travels.

We are also very excited to announce that Alexis Goodstone will be joining us in August to take over the role of Principal Solicitor.

Alexis comes to us from Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) where she has been Principal Solicitor since 2007, and in other roles there since 1999. She has considerable experience in systemic policy and casework. Her experience includes areas relevant to the work of RLC such as police accountability, disability discrimination and Indigenous justice as well as supervising the Homeless Persons Legal Service.

We are very fortunate to have such a strong candidate for this position and look forward to continuing our work in providing access to justice and working towards social change for our community.
