Pro bono

  •  Fair Trials/Racial discrimination in criminal justice (Matter Manager: Paul Flanagan): Between November and December 2020, we took part in a multi-jurisdictional project for Fair Trials – an NGO protecting human rights in the criminal justice system – contributing to the development of a memo on racial and/or ethnic inequality and discrimination in criminal justice across EU countries to highlight any gaps in the EU Member States' legislative policy on such issues. This multi-jurisdictional memo was then used by Fair Trials for the presentation to the European Parliament of a paper on inequality and racism in the criminal justice systems of EU countries.
  • Open Society Justice Initiative/Discovery Research Project (Matter Manager: Brandon O’Neil): Pro bono legal assistance provided to the Open Society Justice Initiative to assess whether certain jurisdictions in Europe have procedures for discovery analogous to the US law, 28 USC 1782, which allows for discovery from US entities/individuals for use in non-American proceedings. The aim of this project was identifying for each target jurisdiction how litigants and/or other interested persons may obtain documents or witness evidence for use in proceedings in other jurisdictions.
