What we do

Lawyers for Lawyers

Lawyers should be able to perform their professional duties freely and independently, without external pressure or fear of reprisal. Even if their work does not suit the government or social elite. In practice, however, many lawyers are threatened or harassed for simply doing their job. Lawyers for Lawyers supports lawyers around the world who face reprisals or improper interferences because of their work. In 2017, Lawyers for Lawyers campaigned for at least 144 lawyers in 23 countries.
