As lawyers, we often take for granted both our education and the resources we used to qualify and now employ in practice. JusticeHub is the platform for country-tailored online legal resources and handbooks that will give hundreds of thousands of under-resourced lawyers in less developed legal systems the tools they need to succeed, to raise global defender standards.
What We Can Accomplish
IBJ is scaling up its Lawyer2Lawyer program through JusticeHub—IBJ’s online solutions marketplace. JusticeHub is a forum that enables lawyers around the world to connect with access to justice advocates and collaborate in real time. Members can form work teams, create legal tools, chat, initiate campaigns and join micro-trainings. Beyond just supporting lawyers, access to JusticeHub also unlocks IBJ’s extensive eLearning and COVID-19 resources—key training tools for raising defender standards worldwide. Join us on JusticeHub to create a Country DefenseWiki page, an eLearning Course, or a Defender Manual.
