GALA‘s goal is to assist legal aid lawyers to help the poor to reclaim their rights, and to promote public interest advocacy and litigation.
GALA works with local partners who are attorneys admitted to practice in the developing country at issue.
GALA provides support in the form of funding for the investigation of a claim, lawyers’ costs and court related fees. GALA also links local lawyers with pro bono support from large multinational law firms willing to commit time to advise on litigation strategy and/or on an area of their expertise (eg financial services; environmental law; competition law).
If you are an advocate and have an issue of public interest in your country with which you would like support; please do not hesitate to connect.
