ISLP provides top-tier pro bono legal services to three primary groups of clients — governments, civil society actors, and social enterprises — cognizant that each represents an important tenet of inclusive development. ISLP’s legal support focuses on the following intersecting thematic areas: accountability and transparency/anti-bribery and anti-corruption; community-inclusive development; investment and trade; media law and freedom of expression; natural resource management; social enterprises and innovative finance; and tax.

We seek to engage where there is an evident need for pro bono legal assistance and the opportunity to make a genuine contribution to inclusive, accountable, and sustainable development. Engagements are driven by client needs and based on the attorney-client model: volunteer legal experts provide advice and guidance, while clients retain the ability to direct development decisions and outcomes.
