Promoting access to justice around the globe
Around the world, our lawyers are working pro bono to ensure access to justice, promote the rule of law, and provide legal services to those unable to afford a lawyer.
Through New Perimeter, DLA Piper’s global pro bono initiative, we also provide pro bono legal assistance in under-served regions around the world to support access to justice, social and economic development and sound legal institutions.
Everyone at DLA Piper plays a role in our pro bono practice. Our lawyers spend time each year providing free legal services to individuals who cannot otherwise afford a lawyer and organizations that qualify for pro bono assistance. Our lawyers have the opportunity to be involved with pro bono work from their first day with the firm.
The firm has a dedicated team of lawyers who help ensure that our program is innovative and effective.
