Bri Collins

Bri is an Australian solicitor with 4 years’ experience in climate litigation. Prior to admission, her background was in community organising and student activism for climate justice. As a university student in 2018, she drafted a blueprint for a human rights and climate change case grounded in the new Human Rights Act, which became the ongoing Waratah Coal v Youth Verdict litigation against a mega-coal Project in Central Queensland. She has worked closely with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to develop the cultural rights component of the case and facilitated the Queensland Land Court’s first On Country evidence hearing. Her experience extends to law reform and academia, having published several papers in peer-reviewed journals and drafted submissions on State and Federal laws.
