Being the lawyer of a human rights‘ activist who is imprisoned puts you in a complex position. You are not only representing the human rights‘ defender in political terms but take up multiple jobs: you communicate with family and possibly politics, you might be involved in organizing daily necessities, you might be confronted with media, and much more.
In this section, lawyers who have already dealt with such situations have documented their experiences. They share their insights and best practices and offer them to the readers and colleagues. All notes have their own background and history. And yet, they hopefully bring inspiration and ideas to you – on how to adjust them to your specific needs and circumstances.
