Our Vision

LAW empowers individuals and communities who have suffered human rights violations and abuses to obtain justice and strengthen institutions to deliver justice to them. LAW takes a  survivor centred, gender sensitive approach to creative legal strategies in order to improve access to justice and provide legal redress to the most vulnerable in conflict-affected and fragile regions.

Who We Are

LAW is an independent, non-profit organisation comprised of human rights lawyers working in fragile and conflict affected areas in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia. We have a particular focus on gender equality and sexual and gender-based violence, natural resource exploitation, rule of law and accountability, and transformative justice, and work to bring justice to those who need it most.
