He also has extensive experience as a legal adviser in the public and non-government sectors, having worked for UNHCR, the Commonwealth Attorney-General's Department (Office of International Law), the Association for the Prevention of Torture (Geneva) and the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission.
