What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The ILF was founded to address the global crisis in access to justice. Every day, millions of men, women, and children are held in jails around the world because they cannot afford a lawyer to defend them. Without legal representation, many face torture or other abuses, languish behind bars for years awaiting trial, or are wrongfully convicted. The denial of access to legal aid, and a lack of qualified criminal defense lawyers, particularly impacts poor and otherwise marginalized communities. These vulnerable populations are disproportionately arrested, prosecuted, and incarcerated.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Afghanistan

Nearly 30 years of civil war, insurgency, and Taliban rule decimated Afghanistan’s justice system and created an urgent need for justice reform. The ILF was established in Afghanistan in 2003 as the country emerged from decades of conflict and oppression. The ILF was the first, and remains the largest, provider of legal aid services to Afghans accused of crimes, regardless of their ethnicity, gender, age, or political affiliation.
