Lawyers Without Borders- Cardiff Student Division
Lawyers Without Borders (LWOB) is an international charitable organisation which aims to protect human rights and promote the rule of law. The organisation is made up of lawyers from around the world who provide pro bono services to access to justice and human rights initiatives. The importance of the organisation in upholding human rights, ensuring legal integrity and raising awareness has been seen globally in relation to issues such as human trafficking, wildlife crime and child labour.
The Lawyers Without Borders Society is the Cardiff Student Division of LWOB, and aims to raise awareness about human rights and the rule of law in relation to national and international issues. The Society holds fundraising events and conducts awareness campaigns (including debates and panel events) throughout the year. The Society also runs a newsletter, The Justicia, which discusses topical human rights issues. Furthermore, the Society undertakes pro bono research tasks and media projects for LWOB, and has competed in the LWOB Annual Rule of Law Innovation Challenge.
