Through the Award, Lawyers for Lawyers generates public recognition for the work and outstanding achievements of lawyers at risk. Former laureates include Alec Muchadehama from Zimbabwe, Magamed Abubakarov from the Russian Federation, Jorge Molano from Colombia and Sirikan Charoensiri from Thailand.
