TrustLaw connects the world’s leading legal teams with high-impact NGOs and social enterprises working to create social and environmental change. We help produce groundbreaking legal research and offer innovative training courses worldwide. We have supported grassroots organisations to employ their first staff members, helped vulnerable women access loans to start their first businesses and brought renewable energy lighting to slums. Free legal assistance on these projects has made a significant impact on local communities working to overcome poverty and discrimination. We are the largest global pro bono network in the world with over 4000 members across more than 175 countries. We work with over 725 law firms and corporate legal departments representing over 120,000 lawyers who generously provide free legal support to thousands of NGOs and social enterprises.
TrustLaw was created to spread the practice of pro bono to drive social change. Our free legal service enables NGOs and social enterprises to streamline operations, expand into new countries and scale their impact. This helps them to focus on their mission and serve their communities without spending valuable resources on their legal needs. Through our research programmes, legal departments can also contribute to the development of powerful advocacy tools that enable NGO and social enterprise members to achieve groundbreaking legal and policy reforms and strengthen the rule of law.
