PILnet and Orrick are pleased to launch a series of memos addressing the availability of legal aid to refugees in eleven Asian jurisdictions.
They provide detailed information about both state and non-state funded legal aid, to serve as a resource for refugees, other displaced people, and the lawyers and organizations that work with them.
Are you an organization needing personalized legal assistance or looking to develop a pro bono partnership to expand the work you are doing to support asylum-seekers and refugees? PILnet can connect you with a qualified pro bono lawyer, at no cost.
If you are an asylum-seeker, refugee, or stateless person, local legal aid providers will be best placed to initially assess and generally address your legal needs. To find a local legal aid provider in the countries covered in these memos, please refer to the country pages of UNHCR Help or Rights in Exile.
