Lawyers Against Poverty


Since LAP’s launch in 2015, members have volunteered on a range of projects from regional observational visits to law book collections for universities around the world. Whatever stage you are at in your career, whether you are in the private, public or non-profit sector, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved with LAP.

Ongoing Opportunities

Our programmes have a number of opportunities to get involved:

Our Junior Lawyers Network (JLAP) offers opportunities for universities and student groups to get involved with LAP and set up their own projects.

We partner with the International Law Book Facility to organise shipments of second-hand legal textbooks to organisations around the world including charities, prisons, universities and pro bono projects. If you’d like to organise a book drive, get in touch.

If you or your group would like to fundraise for Lawyers Against Poverty (LAP), we welcome all the support we can get. Visit our JustGiving page for more information on setting up a campaign.

Ad Hoc Volunteer Opportunities

We also sometimes have ad hoc volunteer opportunities that are posted here.
