The Macedonian Roma Lawyers Association is an independent, non-profit organization formed by a group of Roma law students and graduates, including the first Romani lawyer, which is one of the only two Roma lawyers in Macedonia.

The mission of the Roma Lawyers Association is to encourage and support personal and professional development of young Roma lawyers in order to protect the legal interests of the Roma community in Macedonia.
