Pro Bono

Oxford Pro Bono Publico (OPBP) and Oxford Legal Assistance (OLA) are the two flagship pro bono projects run by the University of Oxford’s Faculty of Law. On this page you can find the projects produced by OPBP and OLA.

OPBP mobilises graduate students and Faculty members dedicated to promoting the principles and practice of public interest law on a pro bono basis. Through its projects, OPBP provides high-quality comparative and international law research to individuals and organisations around the world working pro bono on reports, expert opinions, amicus curiae briefs, policy submissions, and more. OPBP also runs an Internship Programme and organises and promotes public events which generate interest in and awareness of public interest law.
