Bertha Justice Initiative

Supporting and growing the practice of positive social impact law

Bertha Foundation supports over 120 emerging lawyers every two years to work with human rights law firms in 16 countries. In line with our efforts to facilitate the next generation of movement lawyers, we hope to support more than 1000 emerging lawyers through our Fellowship program.

The law has long been a crucial element in the struggle for social justice. Movement lawyers have shown us how the law can be used as a tool for change. Through the Bertha Justice - "Be Just" - Initiative, we support organizations that practice public interest law and promote movement lawyering. By facilitating a global network of public interest lawyers and training emerging lawyers in this field, we work to inspire the growth of social impact law.
