This is a great move because being a lawyer requires a lot of commitment to managing and understanding all the different laws and rights of citizens, corporations and the international law. By being specific in one kind of customer only, these representatives are able to dedicate their carreers entirely to them.
One of the most typical and obvious specializations is the choice to advocate for human and civil rights. This is the area that we will talk about today.
In the legal field, human rights attorneys are responsible for representing clients who have been victims of legal abuse, agression, be it physical or verbal, censure, and any aspect that directly or indirectly hinders their rights of being a civilian of that particular nation.
In the U.S., for example, it is strictly prohibited to be racist, and it can lead the individual to a few days in jail. It is the job of the human rights lawyer to represent their clients who have been the target of this kind of unjustifiable verbal abuse.
At the same time, advocating for migrants’ rights, against religious preconception and censure, defending gay people and other types of agression still defines a lawyer of human and civil rights. It is a very wide specialization with many branching types of clients, and it can be really hard to start if you do not have a sub-specialization.
Luckily, human rights attorneys have a few more benefits that other types of lawyers do not have. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, have the contribution of investors and donors, who do philanthropical donations in order to keep new partners, who advocate for human rights, up and running.
By directly funding these groups, the Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund is one of the primary capacitators of human rights legal partners all around the U.S.
Created by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, formerly also known as the two co-founders of the company Phoenix New Times, which is a news office in Phoenix, U.S., the Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund was created with the very specific intention of funding new and old groups of attorneys who advocate for civil, human, and migrants’ rights.
The last specialization is the most important one for them, because Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were victims of censure against migrants at their time of new citizens of the U.S.
By utilizing a settlement money of more than $3,7 million, they have allowes hundreds of offices to advocate for their clients while not having to worry about a sudden bankruptcy.
They Frontera Fund organization understands how hard it is to start their own business in the legal system, abd there are much easier professions in the legal system, like advocating for the elderly.
With the help of the Frontera Fund, clients now have a much wider option of lawyers to represent them.
