Request Assistance/Refer a Case

The ABA Center for Human Rights is currently accepting requests for assistance from human rights defenders seeking pro bono legal advice.  We also welcome referrals from organizations and individuals who are aware of human rights defenders who need assistance.

You can request assistance or make a referral by calling (202) 662-1744, emailing, or filling out this questionnaire. The more detailed and relevant information that you provide, the better able the Justice Defenders Program is to help.

We emphasize that your identity and personal information will remain confidential, and you have the option of remaining anonymous when contacting us.  We also ensure that our work on behalf of human rights defenders anywhere in the world is coordinated by the American Bar Association, and done in strict accordance with its internal policy and the rules of professional ethics that govern lawyers.
