Reprieve is a London based legal action charity (1114900) founded by human rights lawyer Clive Stafford Smith in 1999. We fight to end the world’s most extreme human rights abuses: the death penalty, assassinations and secret prisons. To us, the rule of law means little if we selectively apply it to people we agree with. It is for all of us.
We investigate, we litigate and we educate; working on the frontline, we provide legal support to those unable to pay for it themselves. We promote the rule of law around the world and secure each person’s right to a fair trial. In doing so, we save lives.
Reprieve’s main office is based in London, UK. Reprieve also supports full time Reprieve Fellows, who work as lawyers, investigators and advocates in different countries. Reprieve works with partners in jurisdictions all over the world, including Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), government officials, individual lawyers and human rights defenders, as well as individual, corporate and foundation funders.
