Inspired by the strength, breadth, and determination of women-led protests in Iran, we, a core roup of Iranian jurists with expertise in comparative law and policy, transitional justice, Iranian law, and human rights decided to accelerate and consolidate our activities to support the people of Iran by incorporating National Assembly of Iranian Jurists (شورای ملی حقوقدانان).

The National Assembly of Iranian Jurists is a nonprofit public policy organization focused on democracy and justice in Iran.
