What we do

Good Law Project is a not for profit campaign organisation that uses the law for a better world.

 

Our mission is to uphold democracy, protect the environment and ensure members of marginalised groups are not left behind by society.

 

The issues we're currently focusing on

Upholding democracy

We use the law to fight for transparency and demand good governance from those in positions of power.

We had a primary role in overturning the prorogation of Parliament in 2019. This year we successfully challenged the Government’s fast-track ‘VIP lane’ for awarding lucrative PPE contracts to those with political connections, and our litigation played a key role in the Met Police opening an investigation into Boris Johnson over the Partygate scandal.

Protecting the environment

We use innovative interventions to strengthen environmental laws and combat the climate crisis.

In July, we campaigned alongside Friends of the Earth and Client Earth to deliver a rare win for the climate: the High Court found the Government’s net zero strategy was unlawful and ordered Ministers to update it.

Ensuring no one is left behind

We use the law to empower, support and advance the rights of those experiencing injustice or inequality.

“One of the biggest challenges underlying campaigning for the Windrush generation has been the lack of public buy-in… Without access to the resources and political capital of a larger organisation with substantial experience in judicial reviews, our legal work was unlikely to have gotten off the ground. Partnering with Good Law Project has fundamentally altered the scope and trajectory of Windrush Lives.” – Ramya Jaidev, Windrush Lives
