Since launch in May 2019, the LawBasket team has been hard at work to reach this milestone, which will help LawBasket to get technical support from HiiL in areas such as impact measurement, an area which will be important as the LawBasket continues to grow.

HiiL is a not for profit organisation based in the Hague which aims to find and support the best justice innovations in the world, and has done so for over a decade. Many startups supported by HiiL have gone on to help communities to get user friendly justice, from Uganda to India.
