Our goal is to develop. manage and support to initiatives in the human rights and global capacity building sectors, leveraging pro bono hours and in-kind support to keep program costs at a minimum. This approach has proven to exponentially increase the power and impact of donor funding.
LWOB collaborations structure and manage pro bono lawyers, or teams of lawyers, from large law firms, the private bar, in-house counsel, government sector and non-profit organizations from around the world, representing an unparalleled and unprecedented accomplishment.
The success of the LWOB model is a testament to the value of the program model that is capable of recruiting, managing and harnessing financial and volunteer resources engaging all sectors of civil society in a globally oriented collaborative pro bono effort.
