Organization Details

The Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation was created to support and empower those working on high-impact, sustainable solutions to social, economic, and environmental challenges. Our mission is to engage Lex Mundi’s global community of 150+ top-tier law firms across 120+ countries to bring critical, high-quality pro bono legal support to social impact organizations. Our flagship offering is our legal matchmaking program. We find and vet quality transactional legal projects with social entrepreneurs and connect them to skilled Lex Mundi member lawyers for assistance. Beyond the matchmaking program, we also provide legal mentoring to help social entrepreneurs become thoughtful and effective consumers of pro bono services; create, curate, and distribute guidance documents on common issues affecting social enterprises; identify resources to assist organizations as they grow, and; develop and facilitate clinics and other speaking engagements for social ventures. 

Impact Story

Social entrepreneurs are pioneering new and creative solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. Inspired changemakers work around the world to improve access to education, fight disease, reduce inequalities, combat global warming, protect civil rights, lift people out of poverty, and more. For every grand challenge, there are dedicated social entrepreneurs working on innovative solutions. They are, without question, more successful when they have access to quality pro bono legal advice. And the same characteristics that make Lex Mundi member firms valuable counsel to leading international corporations also make them powerful resources for these social enterprises. The Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation knows that access to high-quality pro bono legal services has a tremendous impact. Lex Mundi lawyers help social enterprises scale faster, expand reach, secure funding, and ultimately achieve greater success. We help social entrepreneurs start, grow, and achieve their powerful missions.
