probono cause 2017

MENA City Lawyers - MCL Lebanon 2017 Pro Bono Campaign will be dedicated to domestic violence against wives and children.

At MCL Lebanon we are profoundly aware of the importance of legal protection for those who are vulnerable in society and come from disadvantaged communities. The goal of our Pro Bono Campaign is to reach out to those who cannot normally gain access to or afford legal protection and to raise the awareness and highlight the issue of domestic violence.

Domestic violence against women and children is a major concern in Lebanon. It is estimated that at least 3 in 4 women in Lebanon suffer some form of domestic violence during their life and we at MCL Lebanon want to contribute to changing this by helping to protect the victims of domestic violence.

MCL Lebanon will work closely with a number of recognized anti-domestic violence organizations to provide free legal services for all aspects of the penal case relating to domestic violence. Through the provision of such legal advice and aid MCL Lebanon will help protect victims of domestic violence and assist various nonprofit organizations that have a common goal.

MCL Lebanon will review each case and at its discretion choose 3 cases each month to provide free legal aid.
