Mapping Changemaking in
Law and Justice

How do social entrepreneurs view changemaking in law? What strategies do they use to inspire systems change and innovations towards access to justice? How are they influencing communities to lead the action in their respective communities?

Law for All Initiative presents its study of systems-changing social entrepreneurs and young changemakers. This study presents the key impact narratives and themes that the pioneers in the field apply to advance their fight toward equitable access to justice.
