International Law Experience that Empowers Families in Rural Communities

Global Legal Empowerment is an international movement of students and Panamanian & Honduran attorneys providing legal education and financial resources for vulnerable families to resolve legal challenges. We focus our work with women in remote, rural, and under resourced communities who would otherwise have limited to no access to legal resources.
