The Law Programme supports and promotes access to justice and rule of law programmes in the region. It does this primarily through supporting bar associations, lawyers and judges’ organisations that promote and support the rule of law and constitutionalism and advances access to legal information through the establishment of national legal information institutes, through contributing towards international justice discourse and development in the region and to prevent impunity for serious crimes and promoting the development of a criminal justice system that operates within a human rights framework and the rule of law and incorporates elements of safety promotion and crime prevention.
