Why We Do It

The Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation and Lex Mundi member firms and attorneys seek to embody the highest ideals of the legal profession. We believe that along with the privileges and responsibilities conferred upon attorneys, we have a corresponding obligation to use our skills and expertise to give back. With the challenges facing the world today, we need passionate innovators who are willing to think outside the box to effect widespread change. We choose to assist social entrepreneurs because they can have an enormous impact on the environment, economy, and society at large. But, to accomplish their missions, they need top tier legal support. By offering assistance, Lex Mundi attorneys can set social entrepreneurs up for long-term success.  By promoting and facilitating the delivery of pro bono legal services, we hope to support those positively improving in lives worldwide.
