The Institute for the Defence of the Right of Defence (IDDD) is an organization of civil society of public interest (OSCIP) created in 2000 by a group of attorneys committed to the defence of the right to full defence.
Its main purpose is to promote the continuance and amplification of the right to defence against the current of discourse in favour of the hardening of criminal procedures.
The IDDD works to assure that the right to defence is not understood by society as an ally of impunity but, rather, as a fundamental right of all citizens.
To achieve its objectives, the IDDD is widely active both in educational and cultural programmes and in pro bono work for people of little means.
The Pro Bono Institute’s mission is to contribute to the broadening of access to Justice by means of stimulating pro bono representation, by free legal help, by disseminating knowledge of the law, and by making legal professionals aware of the social role of practicing law.
