The Globalaw Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for charitable organizations whose goals are to:
1. Make legal services accessible for the disadvantaged; and
2. Help deserving students obtain a legal education and training.
Nobody should be denied the right to legal representation or an education in the law due to financial constraints or other factors outside of their control.
The Globalaw Foundation supports access to justice for those who would otherwise be denied it for financial or other reasons.
As a passionate advocate of broadening access to study of the law for the disadvantaged, the Foundation also helps fund scholarships for young, underprivileged students.
About the Foundation
First proposed in 2012 by the Globalaw Leadership Programme, and subsequently endorsed by the Globalaw Executive Committee, the Globalaw Foundation has been established as a separate legal entity.
The Foundation operates under the aegis of Globalaw; a global network of law firms dedicated to providing clients with high quality legal services. Globalaw was created in 1994. It is owned by its members and is a non-profit making organization.
The directors of the Globalaw Foundation include former Globalaw presidents, executive committee members and previous participants in the Globalaw Leadership Programme. The Globalaw Foundation is funded through a combination of donations from Globalaw member firms, and funds raised at events hosted and supported by Globalaw.
Supporting the Foundation
Charities supported by the Foundation are selected each year by the Globalaw Executive Committee. Globalaw member firms are invited to propose charities to be considered by the Executive Committee.
