Lawyers Against Poverty

Vision & Mission


A just world without poverty.


To inspire a growing movement of lawyers and members of the wider legal community committed, through gift of time or money, to alleviating poverty worldwide.


We welcome all members of the legal community who embrace our core values:

  • Using the law to transform society
  • Recognising power in diversity and collaboration
  • Showing integrity and compassion as ‘lawyers in society’

We put these into practice by providing opportunities for LAP members to connect with one another, gain insights on ways to use the law as a tool for social justice and offering their skills through our volunteer programmes.

Members’ contributions towards our Justice Fund puts them at the heart of collaborative grant-making efforts to support projects around the world that improve access to justice and promote greater equality.
