    Who are we?

    Worldwide Lawyers Association

    Worldwide Lawyers Association (WOLAS) was established in 2016 by lawyers and academics working in Turkiye, with the aim of conducting activities in the international arena. It is open to individuals who advocate for rights, and its main focus is advocating for rights. Protecting the rights of individuals against both major and minor authorities is one of the association’s primary objectives. In pursuit of this goal, WOLAS adopts an approach that constantly questions the assumptions and blind spots in the understanding of human rights, renewing them with a demand for a more holistic and inclusive concept of justice.

    Method of Operation


    WOLAS Monitoring Unit carries out both situation-based and case-based human rights monitoring activities in order to understand whether the legislation and practices of any country comply with international standards or norms.


    WOLAS Reporting Unit is the Unit that works in close coordination with the Monitoring Unit and prepares reports and information notes on human rights violations by processing reliable data from the Monitoring Unit.

    Legal Operations
