The Objects of the China Human Rights Lawyers

We believe that the status and rights of lawyers must be respected before China can truly develop towards constitutionalism and the rule of law. To that end, we will hold seminars, publish articles and reports about those lawyers, and will invite them to write articles and commentaries which we plan to publish. We will also conduct public campaigns to support the human rights lawyers and legal activists and appeal to the relevant authorities to release detained lawyers and legal rights defenders in China who take up the causes of the underprivileged, including farmers who lose their lands due to illegal and forcible evictions and workers who suffer occupational illnesses and unfair and unsafe working conditions.
