Legal Education

The Legal Education Program supports initiatives that improve citizens’ access to justice and legal aid. We assist organizations that provide specialized counsel to citizens, especially to the the most vulnerable or socially discriminated groups. Since 2007 we direct our support to organizations that expand their activity beyond counseling and use legal instruments to defend citizens rights against all forms of abuse of power by the authorities as well as those that undertake efforts to increase citizens’ access to legal aid and the efficiency of the judiciary system.

Grants are offered in one grantmaking scheme:
Project completed:
  • Citizens Advice Bureaus – grants for non-governmental organizations that provide information and free legal counsel services for citizens
  • Public Scrutiny of Judge Candidates – initiatives aimed to increase public participation in the process of election of judges to the Constitutional Tribunal
