Serve the Underserved, protect the integrity of legal process globally and grow culture of pro bono in Legal Profession in service of the public interest.
Lawyers Without Borders is a globally oriented organization which seeks to serve the underserved and preserve the integrity of judicial process.
We develop and create opportunities for lawyers and students to work pro bono for the public good at the global level.
We provide opportunities for law students and undergraduates to contribute through research, fellowships and internships.
We abide by a mandate of neutrality to ensure access to proceedings, trials, prisons, conflict scenarios which have been otherwise closed.
LWOB relies heavily on in-kind contributions, self-funding volunteers and individual donations to support urgent action responses to human rights intervention requests.
