The contemporary global network of pro bono Human Rights lawyers dedicated to assisting individuals in some of the poorest regions in the world is at its greatest level of sophistication in history.
The 2017 PILnet Global Forum, taking place in Budapest, Hungary from 16-19 October, has at its core an ambitious initiative familiar to A4ID: to “reclaim law as a force of good”.
A4ID is delighted to announce two of their Development Partners—founder of the Human Rights Law Network, Colin Gonsalves and Senior Inclusion Advisor of the Light for the World, Yetnebersh Nigussie—have been named Laureates of the 2017 Right Livelihood Award.
A4ID has launched a peer to peer network for lawyers in India, Kenya and in international firms to connect with each other and exchange knowledge, experiences and materials on the growing and increasingly important field of Business and Human Rights.
A4ID is proud to welcome Trowers & Hamlins as a legal partner. Trowers & Hamlins LLP is an international law firm with offices throughout the UK, Middle East and Asia.
One of the most remarkable developments in the field of law over the past decade has been the rapid growth of pro bono in Europe and increasingly around the globe.
A4ID is delighted to announce that we are now working with 700 development partners around the world.
Three international US law firms, Milbank, Sullivan & Cromwell, and Winston & Strawn have joined A4ID as legal partners.
On 4 August 2016, A4ID’s Deputy Head of Partnerships and Legal Services, Joe Tan, was invited to attend an innovation retreat at Oxford University’s Said Business School as a Legal Advisor for ELHRA Humanitarian Innovation Fund’s ‘Accelerating the Journey to Scale’ Initiative.
On Friday 7 October 2016 A4ID delivered its Business and Human Rights Programme in Kenya.
