Junior Lawyers Against Poverty


Twinning is a JLAP project that creates a community of law students across the world, interested in developing their personal and professional relationships, as well as using their knowledge and legal skills to help in the fight against poverty.

As part of the twinning programme, participants are twinned with a law student in a different country, and engage in a programme of mutual support and learning. Each pair of twins meet monthly over the course of the programme.

Suggestions for areas that our twins might focus on include:

  • Sharing experiences about life as a law student in your countries
  • Sharing experiences about the system of law and legal justice in your countries
  • Producing a blog piece, an article, or a research report on an issue of law relevant to both of your countries or on your experiences as law students in your countries
