TrustLaw is a global centre for free legal assistance and anti-corruption news, run by Thomson Reuters Foundation, the charitable arm of the world’s leading provider of news and information, Thomson Reuters.
In common with all of the Foundation’s programmes, TrustLaw aims to empower people in need by providing trusted information and leveraging professional expertise. We offer services to improve access to the rule of law and foster greater transparency.
Our mission is twofold:
At the heart of TrustLaw is an ambitious electronic platform called TrustLaw Connect, which offers lawyers and pro bono managers a way to easily connect with non-governmental organisations (NGOs), governments and social entrepreneurs seeking free legal services.
TrustLaw believes such clients have the potential to address many of the world’s environmental, humanitarian and social problems, but their effectiveness may be impeded by lack of legal resources. Thomson Reuters Foundation strives to close this gap through its free services.
TrustLaw also features a growing repository of news and information around anti-corruption and governance issues, including national legislation, international conventions, articles, reports, country profiles and law reviews.
Content comes from our own team of specialist journalists as well as from international institutions, law firms, governments, NGOs and others.
