A4ID is a global charity with a vision to see the law and lawyers play their full part in the global eradication of poverty. The mission of A4ID is to be an authoritative voice of the legal community, to inspire and enable lawyers to join the fight against poverty, and to ensure that legal support is available for those engaged in that fight.

For the last 15 years, A4ID has delivered unparalleled opportunities for lawyers to give their time and skills to help those working tirelessly to help meet the needs of the world’s poorest citizens. This role within both the legal and development communities has provided a unique vantage point to engage positively in the nexus between both sectors to promote a sustainable development agenda.

A4ID’s pro bono brokerage service ensures that NGOs, social enterprises and developing country governments, law societies and bar associations worldwide can access the legal support they need. A4ID matches requests for assistance from Development Partners with high-quality expertise from Legal Partners.

A4ID’s education programme brings together legal and development professionals to share best practice and learning, exploring key issues in law and development and equipping lawyers to better understand these issues.

A4ID’s thought leadership and policy work provoke discussion on best practice for the legal and development communities in key areas such as business and human rights in the legal, business and development sectors, the role of law and rule of law in international development, and the advancement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”) with its objective of eradicating poverty globally by 2030.

As part of the ROLE UK Programme team, the Project Officer will also have opportunities to engage with coordination and learning activities, representing the KAZA project as part of A4ID’s broader portfolio.
