Citizenship

One team. Making a difference. Worldwide.

Righting injustices. Strengthening society. Mentoring young people. We go beyond talking about good citizenship – we live it every day.

Making more of our hours

Everyone deserves access to justice. We provide free legal services to people who need it most.

We work together to bring about change, from helping the Liberian government rebuild the nation's healthcare system after years of civil war to advising social entrepreneurs who are tackling society's biggest problems. We donate our legal skills to help the wrongfully convicted, those fleeing persecution and violence, disenfranchised voters, the homeless and hungry, victims of human trafficking, and other underserved populations.
