What does a focus group do?
Lawyers for Lawyers works with two different kinds of focus groups:
- Project groups. A project group specializes in one specific project. A sponsor event for example, or an award ceremony like the Lawyers for Lawyers Award.
- Region and country groups. A focus group for a region or country gathers information about lawyers’ situations in a specific country or region. These groups also stand up for individual lawyers where needed, for example by writing letters to local authorities on a regular basis. But they also maintain personal contact with the lawyers involved, and send observers to their trials.
You can join a group on a project basis, or support region and country groups on an ongoing basis. Lawyers for Lawyers actively advises and supports all focus groups.
Who can form a focus group?
Lawyers for Lawyers currently has 10 focus groups. Any lawyer can sign up for a focus group. We also invite lawfirms or Young Bar Associations to sign up as a focus group.
For our groups that focus on a specific country or region, we are also looking for lawyers with knowledge about the specific situation or language in the region in question.
