Professional Volunteering Opportunities in Law & Human Rights
You can take part in law and human rights volunteering with Projects Abroad PRO. All of these projects are based in the developing world and are ideal for recent graduates, retirees or lawyers on a career break.
We work with a number of partners, including human rights offices, legal firms and NGOs. Examples of the projects include our volunteer human rights officers in Cambodia and volunteer lawyer project in Ghana.
On these projects you will work alongside local qualified professionals who will be keen to share ideas and knowledge about human rights. You will also meet less experienced people who will benefit from your guidance and support.
Our partners are working at grassroots level in areas such as child trafficking, refugee rights and police accountability. Volunteer lawyers or professionals with a related skill or qualification can play an important role in this work.
With a wide range of projects available, we can work with you to decide the placement that best suits your experience and abilities.
Please find below a list of all the available Projects Abroad PRO Law & Human Rights projects.
If you are not a trained professional in this area you can still take part in a volunteer project with us. Click here to view our regular Law & Human Rights volunteer projects.
