Bulgarian Lawyers for Human Rights Foundation is a non-profit organization aiming at the establishment and effective implementation of international standards in the sphere of legal protection of human rights in Bulgaria. Founded in 1993 by five lawyers from different legal-practice backgrounds, the Bulgarian Lawyers for Human Rights Foundation is the first organization of its sort in Bulgaria and in Central and Eastern Europe. Today, eleven years later, the Foundation works with more than 25 prominent lawyers. The Foundation addresses issues regarding the protection of human rights in all fundamental spheres of the Bulgarian legislation.
For achieving its goals, the Foundation takes action in two main directions:
- Legal aid and strategic legal pursuit before Bulgarian and International courts on cases related to: characteristic, repetitive violations of human rights; Bulgarian legislative and judicial practice inconsistent with international standards.
- Publications and other informative and educative activities for the broad public and for the legal community. This activity covers the sphere of international acts and standards and their implementation in the sphere of legal protection of human rights.
