Research is a key driver of Law for Life’s work, generating the theories and evaluation practices that underpin our work. Our evidence and data collection, in turn, provide the basis for our advocacy work and policy initiatives. Analysis of users' needs and the impact of our services is strengthened by dedicated research grants. These findings inform our strategic priorities.

Through our services, we are also able to research cross-cutting issues and provide insight into the wider issues of access to justice and to develop and share good practice across the sector.

We influence policy by leading and contributing to debate with our partners and stakeholders on PLE issues around the world.
