About Good Law Project
We are a small and young organisation but we have been expanding quickly, with increasingly prominent and successful legal cases: we had a primary role in overturning the prorogation of Parliament 21 months ago and have more recently been shining a bright light on the government’s award of PPE contracts and jobs to friends and associates. We raise funds directly from the public for our work in the public interest and operate on a not for profit basis. We are brave, honest, and decisive – those are Good Law Project’s values.
We are leading the way in holding those in power to account and setting the agenda through a series of high profile, successful legal challenges.
