The Bar Human Rights Committee relies on membership subscriptions and individual donations to fund our ongoing work around the world.

Why your support matters

BHRC’s core operational costs are covered by a grant from the Bar Council. This means that every penny of your membership subscription directly funds our project work, enabling us to send BHRC lawyers wherever they’re most needed. Your support is vital to the growth of BHRC, and our ongoing work to protect advocates, judges, human rights defenders and vulnerable communities around the world.

As a member, you will also receive up to date news about BHRC’s work, opportunities to assist with our international projects, statements, publications or other human rights work, and invitations to BHRC events.
