Lawyers Without Borders
Becomes a UK Charity

Expands organization's global outreach

 

LONDON (July 13, 2010) - Lawyers Without Borders today announced the registration of its UK affiliate, Lawyers Without Borders UK, Limited as an officially recognized UK Charity.

Lawyers Without Borders UK, Limited is the U.S.-based organization's first and currently only affiliate outside of the United States. It will continue to develop the group's programming in Africa, Asia and South America and will also help support the large number of LWOB London-based volunteer lawyers working with several major British law firms headquartered there.

"Lawyers Without Borders seeks to integrate skilled pro bono lawyers into rule of law programming designed to improve the integrity of the legal process around the world," Lawyers Without Borders founder and chairman Christina Storm said. "Our presence in London allows us to more easily collaborate with the London offices of several highly regarded global law firms who support the LWOB pro bono mission and goals."

Lawyers at Bingham McCutchen LLP who have represented LWOB in London since 2003, completed the group's charity registration. The office will be led by Storm. For the last year, Lawyers Without Borders UK, Limited has operated from office space donated by Jeffrey Forrest, principal of J. A. Forrest & Co., Solicitors, a Central London general practice. Forrest is a trustee of the LWOB-UK board of directors whose prior pro bono work includes rule of law and human rights assessments in South America.

About Lawyers Without Borders

Founded in 2000, Lawyers Without Borders is a U.S.-based international non-profit dedicated to preserving the integrity of the legal process through training, community outreach, capacity building, neutral observation and other mechanisms that support rule of law in national contexts consistent with international norms.  Regions where the group has ongoing projects include Liberia, Rwanda, Namibia, Tanzania and Kenya.

Because of the sometimes sensitive nature of its work, Lawyers Without Borders cannot always reveal the locations or contents of specific projects. You can support our work globally including the London office by donating via Network for Good or http://www.lwob.org/

 
 

NEW YORK (May 20, 2010) - Lawyers Without Borders, a
U.S.-based international non-profit dedicated to preserving the integrity of the legal process, announced a project today with in-house lawyers at Caterpillar Inc. and the leading international law firm McDermott Will & Emery to conduct research on women's inheritance and succession rights in Kenya and Tanzania.

The partnership involves more than 25 employees at Caterpillar Inc. and more than 30 lawyers spread across McDermott's 17 offices and began in 2005.

"Caterpillar has a long standing commitment to public service," said Senior Corporate Counsel David Masterson. "Projects like this allow us to continue that tradition by helping to grow the next generation of global leaders." 

"As a global international firm we understand the benefits of expanding the rule of law and the formal economy," said Latonia Haney Keith, Pro Bono & Community Service Counsel at McDermott Will & Emery. "We are pleased to be involved in a project that promotes both goals."

The research will support Lawyers Without Borders, 'ongoing'
Record It!? project, which uses a board game to show how documenting events can improve economic status. Data from Caterpillar and McDermott will be incorporated into a training manual that will educate on-the-ground volunteers.

"The lack of proper identification and paperwork has left millions of Africans without access to basic legal, professional and humanitarian services," said Lawyers Without Borders Executive Director Christina Storm. "By educating mothers to keep basic records, we will allow the next generation to enter the formal economy."

Lawyers Without Borders will begin distributing Record It! In East Africa later this year. The group is also seeking underwriting support to finance the costs of the game's production and educational materials to supplement the game.
