- Banyan: SOAS Advocates is a network of postgraduate law students studying at SOAS, University of London. Banyan mobilises these students to offer pro bono legal and policy research as well as drafting skills to interested third parties looking to collaborate on projects that have clear development, human rights or social justice advocacy goals. The society responds to requests from organisations such as civil society actors, law firms and development organizations.
- The underlying aim of the network is to connect enthusiastic students looking to put their skills, knowledge and free time ‘to work’ outside of university. The society responds to requests from organisations such as civil society actors, law firms and development organisations.For further information on how to request help from Banyan, please browse our official documents below.Banyan Committee:
