Increasing Access to Justice and Providing Legal Education Through Online Learning Platforms and Virtual Courts
Justice Defenders, Kenya/Uganda/Gambia/Regional

ABOUT: Justice Defenders aims to make justice and fair trial accessible to prisoners in Africa through legal education, training, and practice. In 46 prisons across Kenya and Uganda, we train defenseless communities—prisoners and prison staff—to become paralegals and lawyers, equipping them with legal skills and knowledge to assert their rights and provide legal services for themselves and others. To keep the wheels of justice turning in COVID-19, we have made our paralegal training available virtually, and we are linking prisons to courts so judges can hold virtual courts.
