Good Law Project uses the law to protect the interests of the UK public. We prioritise tackling poverty and inequality, protecting the environment and upholding democracy.
Throughout the UK there are excluded and marginalised groups who struggle to have their voices heard. Our systems for education, social care, healthcare and immigration are closed, sometimes hostile, spaces for many. We empower and support those who face injustice and inequality by amplifying the voices of marginalised and under-represented communities. We stand alongside communities and individuals to shine a light on the issues they face and support their efforts to overcome them.
Our democracy, and the institutions and rules that govern it, are under threat from a Government that puts its own needs above those of the UK. Rather than working for the people, it’s working for itself. We’re pushing back, to defend parliamentary sovereignty, democratic rights and accountability, and to hold the Government to account. We use the law to strengthen and uphold democracy, and demand good governance and transparency from the Government.
From clean rivers to the climate crisis, we’re working to make sure the law protects the climate and our natural environment. We know litigation in this area can work; we’ve seen its impact already, when we forced the Government to produce a better policy for the future of energy production. The UK has a duty to take the lead in combating the climate crisis. How will we look future generations in the eye if we don’t?
We select our cases carefully. We only take cases that are consistent with our values, and we ask ourselves in particular:
- Does this fall within one of our priority areas?
- Does it address significant issues of disadvantage, unfairness or discrimination, preferably for a relatively large group of people?
- Does it have a strategic impact, with systemic implications beyond the specifics of the case?
Taking a case by case approach, we also consider the prospects for a successful outcome, whether the litigation can be funded, and whether it could be brought (or the underlying issues effectively addressed) without our involvement.
