Why We Do It
The Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation and the law firms and lawyers who are members of Lex Mundi seek to define and embody the highest ideals of the legal profession and to remain at the forefront of the profession. We believe that along with the privileges conferred upon the legal profession we have a corresponding obligation to insure access to justice and to promote the rule of law. We choose to assist social entrepreneurs and social innovators because they have enormous positive impact on the poor and disenfranchised and because they need the services of top tier business law firms--which precisely matches the defining characteristic of Lex Mundi membership. By promoting the delivery of pro bono legal services to these social and economic changemakers, we are ensuring greater access to justice systems all around the world and at the same time we are strengthening the global rule of law.
