Many ISLP projects could not have been accomplished without the expert pro bono support and input of some 45 law firms and barristers' chambers around the world. They provide an unrivalled resource in the depth, breadth, and geographical reach of their legal talent. ISLP is deeply grateful for their partnership, whether a few hours or a multi-year commitment. Of special note are these significant ISLP/firm projects:
- Clifford Chance - Support since 2010 for the Law School of Tanzania's post-graduate legal courses.
- White & Case - Ongoing capacity-building for new arbitration organizations in Haiti and Nigeria.
- Hogan Lovells - American Lawyer Magazine named ISLP and Hogan Lovells as co-awardees of its 2014 Global Citizenship Lifetime Achievement Award for their ongoing work in Liberia. Since 2007, ISLP and a coterie of firm lawyers provided Liberia with extensive assistance related to its extractive and other economic sectors, including negotiation or renegotiation of several major agreements, policy and law reform advice, and institution- and capacity-building support.
“We are honored to be recognized for our longstanding relationship with the International Senior Lawyers Project. They have been pioneers in promoting pro bono work on a global basis and in bringing focus to the critical importance of the functioning legal systems as a tool for promoting economic development. Their exemplary work in Liberia illustrates the impact of these efforts.
-Stephen J. Immelt, CEO, Hogan Lovells
“Blakes is very pleased to provide our continuing and growing support for ISLP’s commitment to using the rule of law to improve the lives of those living in difficult conditions around the world.”
