Human rights lawyers are preparing to bring a landmark case against British American Tobacco on behalf of hundreds of more than 350 children and their families forced by poverty wages to work in conditions of child labour in the fields of Malawi. Leigh Day’s lawyers anticipate the number of child labourer claimants to rise as high as 15,000. While BAT claims it has told farmers not to use their children as unpaid labour, the lawyers say the families cannot afford to work their fields otherwise, because they receive so little money for their crop. <ref>[https://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2019/oct/31/bat-faces-landmark-legal-case-over-malawi-families-poverty-wages BAT faces landmark legal case over Malawi families' poverty wages], The Guardian, 1 November 2019, Accessed 26 November 2019 </ref>
