John Ellis

Survivor/Solicitor providing legal support to survivors, NSW

John Ellis was presented with the honour of the 2014 Australian Lawyers Alliance (ALA) National Civil Justice Award.

John’s experiences have been used as an important case study at public hearings for the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. His personal litigation became a catalyst that formed a crucial part in initiating the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and he continues to connect with and inspire survivors of abuse through his ongoing work as a solicitor.

John is a renowned presenter and is a true inspiration to advocates of justice and survivors alike.
