Since incorporating in 2000, and with support from foundations, law firms, lawyers, and government programs, ISLP has sent hundreds of experienced lawyers to work, pro bono, with clients in more than 50 countries and has delivered more than $110 million worth of pro bono legal assistance through both on-site projects and remote analysis and advice. ISLP is now widely recognized for the high quality law-related assistance and capacity building it offers to select clients – including civil society organizations, least-developed country governments, and other institutions – with scarce resources and little or no access to experienced lawyers to help them meet important rule of law and development needs.
ISLP focuses its assistance in six key areas:
- Natural Resource Management
- Community-Inclusive Development
- Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption
- Civil Society Space
- Investment, Trade & Tax
- Economic & Social Development
