At Lawyers for Nature, we empower people to use the law themselves to protect their local environment. We seek to redress the power dynamic, so that the communities that need access to the law have the tools and education they need, when they most need it. We are democratising access to the legal system for environmental defenders.
We do all of this through our three core aims:
- Simplifying the process of legal support for environmental protection and activism, removing access barriers for less advantaged communities
- Addressing the prohibitive cost of legal advice and representation, using crowdfunding and the creation of a 'Legal Aid for Nature’ fund
- Facilitating knowledge-sharing and capacity-building between local and national environmental groups, so that essential knowledge is leveraged
