Capacity building and training

As part of our work to help build a strong global legal defence network for independent media, MLDI will support the development of media law expertise and encourage lawyers to take up media cases by providing financial assistance for specialist media law training and workshops for lawyers.

Priority will be given to proposals that respond to a demonstrated need on the ground, increase the geographical coverage of the Media Legal Defence Initiative and are likely to have a high impact on protecting media freedom.

Grants awarded by MLDI are usually for a 12-month period and range in size up to GBP25,000.

If you are unsure whether you qualify, please submit an application or get in touch and our staff will advise you.
