The Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law

The Bingham Appeal

As a charity, the Centre relies solely on grants and donations from a variety of sources. It has had extensive support from the legal community, trusts and companies and we are delighted to have raised nearly £2.25m in the First Phase of the Appeal which has enabled us to establish and launch the Centre.

The Bingham Development Board, chaired by Guy Morton and Guy Beringer will build on this significant achievement, to raise sufficient capital funds to support the longer-term sustainability of the Centre.

To that end, the Centre, is looking to double its initial resources to at least £5m by 2015, with the aspiration to achieve overall resources of £10m over the longer term. This will fund both the Centre's growing global network of talented research fellows and a significant portfolio of applied research projects.
