Our vision is a just world without poverty
We want a world where people are valued and treated equally
We want a world where the poorest are empowered and have access to justice
Welcome to Lawyers Against Poverty. Our vision is to build a community of lawyers across the globe who use access to justice to relieve poverty.
Lawyers Against Poverty was created to focus on the vital role justice can play in ending poverty. As individual lawyers, we work hard to protect the interests of our clients. As part of the Lawyers Against Poverty community, we have the opportunity to influence and bring about change that makes justice a reality for those living in poverty.
We offer members the prospect of getting involved in key activities and opportunities. Your membership fees also enable us to fund legal projects which promote access to justice for men and women living in poverty.
Work with us on our new initiative intended to increase engagement with refugee rights issues and encourage collaborative action to support refugees overseas and in the UK.
Thematic Groups offer you an opportunity to contribute to our work and expand your legal knowledge in an area of interest to you.
In June 2018, Just Lawyers, our initiative for in-house lawyers, was launched at the Law Society’s In-House Division Conference.
