JOIN OUR REGISTER
We maintain a pro-bono register of persons from legal academics, practitioners, civil society actors and journalists who are interested in contributing to legal actions for the promotion of human rights accountability internationally.
Signing up is free and guarantees you a place on the GLAN Registry where your legal skills, and/or human rights experience will be categorized. As GLAN strives for innovative use of law all specializations and types of expertise are welcome.
GLAN may consult you should there be a match with new and on-going legal actions. This will allow project leaders to match any upcoming legal actions with the most suitable skills set on the registry. Interacting with a project could range from consultation, drafting, reviews, to primary research.
By entering your data here, you consent to us storing and processing your data for the purposes of determining your suitability for casework. Your data may be shared among GLAN caseworkers, and exceptionally with other external advisors. We will not use this data for any other purpose. We will retain it for three years, and will seek your consent to retain it further if we have not contacted you within that period. To have it removed or updated, please email
