AgiLawyer, May 23, 2022: In response to the situation in Ukraine, AgiLawyer s.r.o., in cooperation with the Czech law firm Holubová Advokáti, has established #UA.SUPPORT, an international pro bono platform that links Ukrainian refugees requesting legal help with appropriate lawyers.
The platform accepts more than 100 requests for legal aid per week as many Ukrainian refugees need legal aid concerning immigration, employment, schooling, healthcare, business development, or other areas.
The project has joined so far more than 150 volunteer lawyers from 25 mostly European countries and the numbers are constantly increasing.
UA.SUPPORT is officially recognized or supported by a number of European bar associations, emergency services, global legal institutions, independent non-profit NGO organizations, and embassies of Ukraine.
