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.
Our programmes have a number of opportunities to get involved:
- Get paired with a lawyer in another region to embark on a year of peer mentorship through our Twinning Programme
- Set up a series of workshops with a local refugee charity as part of our Refugee Legal Confidence Programme
- Offer career insights to members of our Junior Lawyers’ Network through our Mentoring Programme
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.
