For projects in need, the Legal Lab exists to support your work in promoting internet freedom globally. The Lab endeavors to assist you with acute legal issues as well as with building a solid legal foundation to mitigate risks that could hinder the effectiveness of your work or threaten its very existence.
For lawyers who want to help, the technology-centered projects OTF supports are integral to fighting the suppression and censorship of free expression and information, as well as the dissemination of misinformation, upon which oppressive regimes rely to infringe the fundamental rights of their citizens and commit human rights abuses. Because our projects operate worldwide to fight censorship, suppression, and misinformation, the legal issues they face are global and multi-jurisdictional.
