LWOB is a registered charitable organization with a mission to advance rule of law and protect the integrity of the judicial process worldwide by using the pro bono resources of volunteer lawyers, judges, and law students. This mission is fulfilled through programs that support transparency, capacity building, and service to the underserved while maintaining a neutral orientation at all times.
LWOB programs bring together a diverse corps of international pro bono lawyers and judges from around the world with diverse skill sets to provide the underserved and the marginalized with access to justice and to improve justice sectors worldwide through the training and educating of lawyers, judges, and law enforcement officers.
The goal of the student division is to raise awareness for the LWOB mission and inform students of current issues surrounding access to justice. This will include creating a human rights newsletter, hosting formal debates and moots on Rule of Law, organizing workshops, lectures and seminars, as well as organizing court visits to gain exposure to courtroom advocacy. In addition, there is the option to apply to LWOB for a research project to further explore the access to justice and study international Rule of Law.
