Justice Centres Uganda is a project of the Government of Uganda under the Justice Law and Order Sector. Started in December 2009, JCU was established and operationalized in the Judiciary. JCU is a one stop-shop legal aid clinic that seeks to bridge the gap between the supply and demand sides of justice. This is done through the provision of a broad range of legal aid services to indigent and vulnerable persons in Uganda.
Focusing on cost efficiency, effectiveness, quality and outreaches, the services of Justice Centres Uganda cut across civil and criminal areas of justice. The Project aims at empowering individuals and communities to claim their rights and demand for policy and social change.
