New Perimeter aims to support women’s advancement as an overarching goal.
Our lawyers provide assistance to charitable organizations, governments and academic institutions on projects designed to strengthen a country’s legal system, improve the skills of its judges, lawyers and law students, encourage economic growth, promote access to justice and the rule of law, and strengthen women’s rights.
