Ukraine Justice Alliance

 

 

Our Purpose

We are a coalition of lawyers, law firms and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that have formed an alliance to support Ukrainians in response to the catastrophic invasion of their country.  The UJA is on track to be the largest ever mobilisation of the international private sector in solidarity against an act of war. 

 

Our purpose is to support Ukrainians, NGOs, civil society organisations and the legitimate government of Ukraine by providing a platform through which to deliver the best legal expertise now and as needs change and develop. 

 

Our aim is to provide a hub for cross-collaboration and idea sharing with a view to providing the best support possible.  The aim is to identify and lend expertise in specific areas, share resource and avoid duplication to maximise the quality of support we can offer. 

 

Our Projects

 

The alliance is project-led: we will meet Our Purpose through a combination of legal projects through which we will explore and support/bring direct legal actions regarding human rights and international law violations, environmental abuses and stolen and damaged national assets.

 

We will also provide free content on critical legal issues that are affecting Ukraine and Ukrainians, ranging from humanitarian consequences to matters of accountability, including evidence gathering. 

 

The alliance will also provide legal resources to established NGOs during the Ukrainian conflict.

 

Please contact us to let us know the support you would like to offer or to discuss how you can help.

 

Our alliance

 

Our inclusive alliance comprises law firms and lawyers from a wide range of jurisdictions, who are collaborating in order to provide an international response to the crisis befalling Ukraine. 

 

We welcome lawyers to join our alliance and make use of our platform and resources - in particular Ukrainian lawyers and their law society professional networks who are encountering significant operational difficulties.  International legal experts are here to support Ukrainian lawyers and the government to plan and deal with essential conflict and post conflict (transitional justice) legal matters.

 

On our News page we will publish news from alliance members relating to legal issues arising from the conflict and efforts taken in the international legal community to assist Ukraine.

They are not responsible for other individual members nor can they be construed as agreeing with any opinions expressed by individual members. Alliance members remain independent and the alliance does not form a partnership and nor can it be construed as forming any partnership.  Each alliance member may independently decide the extent of its contribution.
