  • Clinical Legal Education: Please consider donating if you would like to assist us in advancing clinical legal education in the Middle East and Latin America. Law clinics are an increasingly global means for advancing access to justice for poor and vulnerable members of society as well as for imparting in law students a sense of volunteerism and community service. Many vulnerable sectors of society in the Middle East, including women, children, the disabled and migrant workers, have very limited access to justice in the MENA region. By donating to this cause, you will help us establish and run legal centers at Universities in the region that can provide free and quality representation to these populations.
