The Lawyers who Risk their Lives for Justice

Every year, lawyers who work for the defence of human rights are harassed, threatened, persecuted and even killed. On the 24th of January, the Day of the Endangered Lawyer, the international community celebrates the importance of lawyers in upholding human rights and the rule of law, and reflects on how to combat the serious threats they face.
