Lawyers Without Borders, (LWOB) founded in 2000, is a registered charitable entity in the United States of America, the United Kingdom and Kenya. LWOB engages all sectors of the civil society as well as private profit-driven institutions in a globally-oriented and collaborative effort through the recruitment of volunteers and the acquisition of financial resources.
As one of the student divisions of LWOB, we are committed to complement, mirror and be consistent with LWOB's core model mission and philosophy. We aim to promote a strong pro bono culture and direct participations in various projects organised internally or by our parent organisation for law students and non-law students alike.
The new committee hopes to expand its accessibility across SOAS and enshrine the impact that students (law or non-law) can have on the world around us via pro-bono work. We promise to increase opportunities for SOAS students, and to always have an open door to questions or suggestions. We intend to lead a policy and debate guild within SOAS, as well as strengthen our involvement with the other university divisions of LWOB.
