Activating Legal Prowess
Who We Work With
We use the courts to challenge the United States to live up to its obligations under U.S. and international law. We work with lawyers and law firms that are interested in doing pro bono work in accountability, refugee protection, and impact litigation.
The Help We Need
The oppressed are always in need of quality representation that can protect their human rights. We are eager to partner with and leverage the talent of law firms to represent our clients on human rights issues like asylum, corruption and abuse, and countering extremism.
Human Rights First leverages millions of dollars in pro bono legal hours every year to challenge policy and change people's lives. We are always interested in partnering with law firms, legal clinics, law schools, and other entities that can commit pro bono counsel to assist in all aspects of our legal work, including investigating, drafting, and filing impact litigation.
