The Lawyers Without Borders Southampton Student Division is a student-run group in affiliation with the non-profit organisation Lawyers Without Borders, formed to promote and further their work.
Lawyers Without Borders is a charity that seeks to integrate skilled pro bono lawyers into rule of law programming designed to improve the integrity of the legal process around the world (www.lwob.org).
