Human Rights Working Group
A&O’s Human Rights Working Group encompasses more than 250 lawyers around the world who are passionate about using their expertise to protect and promote human rights.
We provide pro bono support to human rights charities and non-governmental organisations, such as Liberty, INTERIGHTS, Fair Trials International and Amicus in the delivery of their work. This ranges from representing marginalised communities in court and submitting interventions and amicus curiae briefs, to undertaking international comparative research projects to inform policy work.
We deliver training for (and with) our clients on human rights compliance and human rights policies, particularly in the context of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the European Convention on Human Rights and the Charter of Fundamental Rights.
