ILP is a charity providing pro bono legal expertise to civil society, governments and communities around the world in order to promote economic & environmental justice and the rule of law. 

Our diverse staff team are based in Africa, Asia and Europe and are dedicated to using the law to help our partners create long-lasting change and to achieve justice.   

We pull together teams of pro bono experts to support the policy and legal needs of marginalised communities located in more than 80 countries, primarily in the Global South; with active projects across sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, Asia and Europe.  In 2022 we provided 5,400 hours of pro bono support valued at £3.9 million to those in need around the world.


Our expert international staff team select and coordinate highly skilled volunteers from our global network of lawyers and others.  We offer this expertise to partners who require legal support to enhance their advocacy, optimise reforms and overcome the issues they face.  We can advise on areas such as policy reform, transparency and accountability and enforcement of the law through a number of different mechanisms including legal analysis, research, legal support, training, mediation, access to information requests and strategic litigation.
