Globalaw supports communities in need
The Globalaw Foundation gives back to communities and organizations in need, with a focus on legal education and access to justice.
The directors of the Globalaw Foundation include former Globalaw presidents, Executive Committee members and previous participants in the Globalaw Leadership Programme that come from Globalaw member firms worldwide. The Foundation, in the spirit of Globalaw, does not confine itself to any geographic area and carries out its activities across the world. The Globalaw Foundation is funded through a combination of donations from Globalaw member Firms, and funds raised at events hosted and supported by Globalaw.
The Foundation has two key missions:
to help young people access legal education and training and to support access to justice for those who would otherwise be denied it for financial or other reasons.
We strongly believe in new generations and their potential to achieve a better and fairer world through a wider legal culture to be globally spread as an indispensable tool for peace and democracy.
We work together to provide legal representation and related education to those in need.
