Write Letters


Writing letters helps!

On a regular basis, we support lawyers by writing letters to the authorities of the country where the lawyer is based. To increase the effect of these letter-writing actions, we aim to have them coincide with letter-writing actions of international human-rights organizations, such as Amnesty International and Human Rights First. The effect or our letter-writing actions increases even more if large numbers of individual lawyers would write them. For that reason, L4L has set up a database of lawyers that have agreed to these actions.

If you want to help other lawyers by writing letters, please contact us. We will keep you informed of our letter-writing actions through email. We will also send you a format for a letter that you can use, as well as the contact details of the relevant authorities. To ensure that the authorities are aware of you being a lawyer, we request you to print the letters using the letterhead of your firm. We would appreciate it if you could send us copies of the letters you send, so that we will know exactly which lawyer has received special attention, as this may contribute to future actions.

You can find further information on our letter-writing actions in our columns in the Advocatenblad, or the legal newsletter Orde van de Dag. Recently, we have conducted letter actions for lawyers in Russia, Tunisia, Syria, the Philippines and Morocco.
