Justice Advocacy Africa (JAA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting confidence African legal judicial systems through sustainable programs providing professional advocacy training for African lawyers.
Since 2009 we have trained over 1000 African lawyers and provided training in teaching advocacy to nearly 200 of those who have been through our programs in Malawi, Uganda, Kenya and Botswana.
We partner with African organizations such as a law society, university, law school or human rights organization and bring volunteer advocacy trainers from outside Africa to assist with the advocacy training and provide mentoring to the Africa advocacy trainers. Our volunteers pay their own way. All trainers provide the training pro bono; we promote pro bono as a part of our programs programs.
We welcome new volunteers. Contact us on the web form or at JusticeAdvocacyAfrica@gmail.com.
One of our volunteer faculty could have been speaking for all of the more than 50 who have joined us:
"My experience with the lawyers of Uganda was the most exciting and fulfilling teaching experience of my life. I would enthusiastically recommend it to anyone who wants to make a meaningful contribution to the world of trial lawyering and have an intimate view of beautiful country and its culture."
