L4L is an independent Dutch foundation. To be able to continue our work, we depend entirely on donations or other forms of support.
Our supporters are mostly individual lawyers, law firms, and lawyers organizations.
Any lawyers and judges that we send on fact-finding or observation missions participate on a voluntary basis and only receive compensation for travel and lodging expenses. Law Firms, the Dutch Bar Association and the local Bar Associations generously cooperate by making their people available or by making financial contributions.
Law firms have sponsored projects for L4L.
The help of our volunteers in writing and translating letters, collecting information, translating and managing the website is of invaluable importance to us.
With your donation Lawyers for Lawyers is able to help (human rights) lawyers who are not able to do their job freely and independently, who are hindered or threatened because of their work as a lawyer.
To maintain our independence Lawyers for Lawyers will not accept money from the government. That’s why we need donations from people like you.

If you or your law firm are interested in providing such support, please contact us (email@example.com). We will gladly discuss the possibilities with you.

You can authorize L4L to annually collect a fixed amount from you. All you need to do is complete this form and return it to us.
