LEAP is an organization creating itself as it works. Founded by a small group of lawyers, LEAP seeks to expand access to legal knowledge within the community of people whom the law can empower. LEAP works within the West Bank Palestinian community and is striving to become fully anchored in a partnership between the Palestinian community and the professionals who provide advice and representation.
