How to join the ILN?

Do you feel strongly about justice and the defence of human rights?

As a lawyer, do you want to get involved in a cause and a sustainable project, and contribute to actual defence cases? The ILN welcomes young or more experienced lawyers with one or several fields of legal expertise, thematic or contextual, who are available to act in the field or from their local bar association. Whenever there is a new mission to be undertaken, the ILN sends out a “call for volunteers” to the whole of the network and entrusts the mission to available lawyers according to their fields of expertise. All missions are conducted in strict accordance with the rules of the legal profession and under the coordination of ASF. To join the ILN we ask that you complete the registration form below (or send us the PDF or Word version of the form by post or email along with your CV), which allows us to better match our members’ profiles to specific areas of intervention and contact them on an ad-hoc basis if necessary.
