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. To join our membership please use the link at the top of the page.

and help make access to justice a reality
We are offering volunteering opportunities for anyone interested in using their skills to make a difference.
