The Muslim Legal Network is a gateway for all Australian Muslim lawyers and law students to engage with a wider community of lawyers and fellow Muslim students. It grants an avenue for those in the legal profession to engage with the minds of Australian Muslim Law Students and provides students with insight and advice regarding their future professions.
The network also provides for the sharing of community concerns that may require action from the network as a representative body.
The MLN ethically strives towards protecting the civil liberties and human rights of Muslims living in Australia. A framework has been created in which Muslim legal practitioners and law students can associate and provide mentoring and support regarding the legal profession.
Furthermore, The MLN works diligently towards building a better understanding of the Islamic faith within the wider Australian community through the development of various bodies, projects and dialogue and providing assistance to other Islamic organizations.
