Our Values

Unhindered access to legal assistance – we believe access to independent legal assistance from a lawyer is a fundamental right and vital to upholding the rule of law

Equality – we provide legal assistance to all, irrespective of nationality, age, gender, ethnic origin, religion and belief, disability or sexual orientation and at all times all team members shall abide by the European Lawyers in Lesvos Code of Conduct

Quality – the legal assistance we provide is provided by practising and experienced Greek and European asylum lawyers who have been identified through a rigorous application and selection process. The legal assistance we provide complies with the professional and ethical standards of the legal profession, including those relating to privacy and confidentiality

Independence – the legal assistance we provide is completely independent, and in the interest of the individual we are assisting
