Legal Aid of Cambodia (LAC) is a Khmer-run non-governmental organization which was founded in 1995 by Cambodian people and formally registered at the Ministry of Interior of Cambodia with recognition of King Sihanouk. LAC has provided Cambodia’s poor with a quality legal service free of charge. LAC prides itself on being independent and non-political. LAC’s mission is to provide free, quality legal services to and advocate for Cambodia’s poor in both criminal and civil cases. LAC is one of leading organizations in Cambodia to maintain a significant, permanent presence in rural Cambodia where 80% of the population resides, with offices in eight locations: Phnom Penh (Head Office), Siem Reap, Battambang, Kampong Thom, including four satellite offices in Pailin, Kampong Cham, Prey Veng and Svay Rieng provinces.
The importance of issues concerning the well-being of children, the status of women and the need to safeguard property rights led LAC to establish specialist programs focusing on each of these areas, complementing the work of LAC’s General Legal Aid program. The General Legal Aid program also manages LAC’s efforts to support the Khmer Rouge Tribunal, and labour trafficking and to provide legal services to other poor Cambodians.
LAC is supported by donors from the international community. LAC’s donors are the European Union, GIZ, Every Child, Friend International, Plan International, AusAid, French Embassy, Open Society Institute, and Wheeler Foundation.
