ABOUT US

Often the initiative arises from necessity. StraLi was born from the meeting of some jurists who, faced with the dysfunctions of the justice system, share the same need.

So called by the javelin, the arrow, the dart that hits the target in the center, StraLi (STRAtegic LItigation) is a non-profit association made up of seven young Turin jurists with the aim of promoting the protection of rights through the tools of strategic litigation.
