About Us

Our Story

ILP is an alliance of talented and passionate lawyers drawn from diverse countries and cultures across the globe. We pull together teams of pro bono experts to support the policy and legal needs of marginalised communities.

Founded in the UK in 2005, we are staffed by a group of lawyers dedicated to using the law to achieve economic and environmental justice through strategic pro bono legal support. For nearly twenty years we have supported partners in more than 80 countries.

We are proud to have a diverse staff team from Africa, Asia and Europe, reflective of the communities we support and with extensive experience in our focus areas, as well as law and international development. We work primarily in the Global South, with active projects across sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, Asia and Europe.

As a charity, our ultimate aim is to help our partners create long-lasting change in some of the world’s most marginalised regions.

Our Mission

We advance economic and environmental justice and the rule of law through the provision of pro bono legal expertise to civil society, communities, and governments.


Our vision is a just and sustainable world in which law serves as a tool for those who need it the most.

The ILP, in collaboration with the Committee on Fiscal Studies, conducted a training for 21 members of the Kenyan Tax Appeals Tribunal in early 2024 in Nairobi. The training session was aimed at improving the rule of law by increasing access to justice, strengthening institutions, increasing legal certainty, and improving public trust. To read more about this important training, please read the blog post on our News page.
