Law Brigades at London School of Economics

Law Brigades volunteers work with Panamanian lawyers to provide pro-bono legal consulting through a 8 day Law Brigade in Panama. Student volunteers can either join an existing Law Brigades chapter on their campus or create their own chapter and recruit other volunteers. Law Brigades provides services to remote communities using a free legal clinic model, where volunteers shadow and assist lawyers as they provide legal consulting to community members. Additionally, volunteers work to incorporate unregistered communities to empower them with rights and government benefits that they would not have received otherwise. Law Brigades primarily works with remote communities that are under resourced and largely unaware of their legal rights.
