I. Our Centre

ForNGO was established in September 2012 as the first supporting NGO in China which provides legal support to other NGOs.  Now ForNGO has full-time employees including experienced staff lawyers.

ForNGO’s business scope covers:

1. Academic research: we boost the development of public interests related laws, esp. NGO laws, through participating in various legislative research projects.

2. Legal support: we act as clearing house for NGOs and refer legal requests to qualified and appropriate lawyers.  In addition, we have staff lawyers who will provide chargeable professional legal services.

3. Capacity building: other than providing direct legal support, we recommend NGOs to get well prepared to solve simple legal questions themselves.  Our training and empowerment courses will introduce practical legal skills to other NGOs.  More than 1000 NGOs from both domestic and abroad are benefit from our courses.
