About Law Brigades
Law Brigades volunteers work with Panamanian lawyers to provide pro-bono legal consulting to rural communities. Volunteers offer services through a free legal clinic, where volunteers shadow and assist lawyers as they provide legal consulting to community members. Volunteers also work with lawyers to provide land titling to families, empowering them with rights and government benefits that they would not have received otherwise. Law Brigades primarily works with rural communities that are under resourced and largely unaware of their legal rights. Additionally, volunteers provide legal capacity building workshops on various legal concepts to empower communities through education. Between brigades, Global Brigades’ in-country staff works to secure legal outcomes and provide follow-up.
