LexisNexis Creates Legal Aid Portal for Displaced Ukrainian Attorneys

January 24, 2023 (1 min read)

In its ongoing effort to support the rule of law worldwide, the LexisNexis Rule of Law Foundation has established the Ukraine Legal Aid Portal to aid members of the Ukrainian legal community affected by the war in Ukraine. 

ESTABLISHED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE UKRAINIAN Bar Association, the Portal offers assistance in a number of areas and is supported by attorney volunteers at Reed Elsevier offices around the world.

The Portal allows law firms and corporations to offer job opportunities and legal assistance to Ukrainian lawyers displaced by the war. In addition, a number of external resources are available free of charge via links on the portal. Among the areas addressed by the external resources are donations, international bar association, housing, office space, healthcare and medicine, emotional support, and assistance for Ukrainians living with disabilities.

The site is accessible in both English and Ukrainian.

The portal joins a number of earlier efforts undertaken by LexisNexis Legal & Professional and the Rule of Law Foundation in support of the Ukrainian legal community. Law 360 is providing free access to War in Ukraine, a compilation of daily news items related to all aspects of the conflict, while Lexis Practical Guidance has created the Ukraine Invasion Resource Kit, covering all of the legal issues emerging from the war.

The LexisNexis Rule of Law Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing the rule of law around the world. The rule of law comprises four key elements: equality under the law, an independent judiciary, publication of laws, and access to remedy. The Foundation seeks to advance the rule of law in one or more of these areas by deploying skills in development projects and working with partners who share the vision of advancing the rule of law and leading the change for better in the world.
