Advocacy and Strategic Litigation
Through strategic litigation and advocacy activities, the Legal Agenda promotes legal and social change via the courts and public institutions. Since 2011, we have filed or supported more than 50 strategic litigation court cases in Lebanon to improve rights related to labor, disability, sexual and gender-based violence, asylum, human trafficking, free speech, the environment, public property, and other areas. We have also published a series of model legal pleadings that provide legal arguments and supporting research for judges and lawyers to use in human rights court cases. In addition, the Legal Agenda is engaged in many advocacy campaigns alongside its partners in Arab countries, including campaigns to promote the independence and transparency of the judiciary.
