The Alliance for Lawyers at Risk is an independent UK-based pro-bono network, founded in 2010, that provides moral and legal support to lawyers and human rights defenders working in precarious circumstances. The Alliance supports the work of PBI and other organisations.
The Alliance was founded in 2010 by Peace Brigades International UK patron, the late Sir Henry Brooke, and has since then been collaborating closely with PBI in providing legal expertise to the human rights defenders PBI accompanies.
On 17 October 2017, the Alliance relaunched its initiative of extending moral and legal support to lawyers and human rights defenders at risk.

On 16 November 2015 PBI UK and the Alliance for Lawyers at Risk held an event ‘Shakespeare and the Law’ to celebrate and honour the courage of lawyers who take risks on a daily basis to defend the rule of law.
