Public Interest Lawyering

12 January 2011

In order to strengthen civil society and inspire lawyers to advance the public interest, PILnet builds the capacity of public interest lawyers working in NGOs through fellowships, skills-building workshops, resource dissemination and other means. Through an International Fellows Program and national fellows programs, such as in China, law students are encouraged to develop public interest law careers, NGO staff improve their skills, and civil society initiatives have a greater likelihood of success and impact in influencing law and policy.

PILnet’s trainings and workshops help connect public interest advocates to each other across issues and borders, in places as diverse as Europe, Russia, and China,  so that they are well equipped and awakened to what is possible to achieve in their local contexts. These activities are helping to build national and global networks of pioneers and leaders dedicated to using legal tools to advance the public interest.
