Using the law for campaigning & social change

Sheila McKechnie Foundation
A 101 guide for campaigners.
Strengthening Civil Society


This Guide is for those who:

  • You’re not sure how the law operates
  • You want to know what is possible
  • You think the law could be useful but need help to get started
  • Your organisation isn’t yet equipped to use legal tools in campaigns.

It was produced as part of a conference on Using the Law for Social Change in November 2019 run by the Sheila McKechnie Foundation via a grant from the Foundation. There are more resources on their website at
