introduction about the organization

Who We Are

In early eighties, a group of lawyers, committed to the work of human rights formed a loose group in order to defend the victims of State Repression. Later on, in 1992 when the Punjab police and the security agencies who were operating in Punjab, started a campaign to harass and kill the human rights defenders and the group started sufferring losses, the group formally organised themselves under the name and style of “LAWYERS FOR HUMAN RIGHTS”, which later on came to be known as “LAWYERS FOR HUMAN RIGHTS INTERNATIONAL”.
