Team, source:

UA.SUPPORT is a platform where volunteer lawyers offer their help to people in need of legal assistance. Currently, the main focus is on people from Ukraine. The service is already active in 30+ mostly European countries, and it includes 250+ volunteers. We are already receiving approx. 150 requests for legal aid per week, and expect this number to grow as we more actively promote the service in additional countries. To see a video illustrating what we do at UA.SUPPORT, click here.

In order to scale up the platform to become a truly global pro bono solution that helps anyone in need (not necessarily from Ukraine), we would like to invite lawyers, law students, or law graduates to join. Ideally, we would like to fill the following two positions in each country where we operate. (You can find a list of countries where we operate on our website; however, we are open to expanding to other countries, as well.).
