Our Funders

"At the Joffe Trust we are delighted to support the International Lawyers Project. They play a crucial role in connecting specialist legal advice to public interest cases around the world. We’ve been so impressed by how they mobilised lawyers to work on issues like advising southern governments on high profile tax cases, redressing the balance of power in relation to corporate interests."


Alex Jacobs, Trust Director

"At Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, we support ILP’s valuable work to seek better transparency, accountability and enforcement of laws and policies to combat the corrosive effects of corruption and illicit financial flows. Their pro bono legal assistance to civil society organisations is an important tool in encouraging greater action by UK regulatory and enforcement agencies to hold UK corporations operating internationally to account."

Katharine Knox, JRCT Programme Manager  

A 2022 Independent Impact Evaluation contracted by ROLE UK found:

  • ILP’s projects are clearly relevant and coherent with the missions, objectives and outcomes goals held by ILP’s clients 

  • ILP’s client led approach, and in-depth research on domestic laws and contexts helped to ensure their support and training was relevant to the contexts in which their clients were working

  • ILP have been effective in implementing their projects and achieving their objectives, receiving very positive feedback

  • ILP’s model of working with civil society was more likely to produce behaviour change outcomes and longer-term results more quickly
