Starting in January 2004 as an offshoot of the Beautiful Foundation, one of the most renowned charitable organizations in South Korea founded in 2000, we have grown from four to now seven lawyers who are recognized as experts in the newly developing area of public interest law. Along with our lawyers, we have two administrators to oversee the operational, marketing and fundraising aspects of our organization.

We are wholly financed by the Public Interest Lawyers’ Fund established by the Beautiful Foundation. This Fund is used for all of our activities and administrative operations. A major contributor to the Fund was an anonymous donor who gave 150,000,000 KRW (approximately $150,000) in December 2003 and January 2004 to act as seed money. Other donors now include ordinary individuals who share our vision and have committed to giving one percent of their income towards our activities, as well as a number of major law firms that sympathize with our cause and vision.
