About Access To Justice Nigeria
Founded in 1999, Access to Justice ("A2Justice”) is a justice advocacy group working to defend rights of equal and non-discriminatory access to courts of law, expand access of vulnerable people to equal and impartial justice, attack corruption in justice administration, support legal struggles for human dignity and disseminate legal resources that help achieve these purposes. A2Justice work has helped to reform important rules governing citizen’s rights to petition redress for civil rights violations from law courts as well as laws to ensure greater transparency and accountability in the investigation of summary or extrajudicial killings by law enforcement officials. A2Justice is implementing a number of other programmes that seek to ease difficulties and obstacles that Nigerians face when they have justice needs or make recourse to institutions of law and justice. In 2010, A2Justice was awarded the first-ever Nigerian Bar Association Gani Fawehinmi Prize for Human Rights and Social Justice,being one of other awards it has received. Access to Justice has offices in Lagos, and Nigeria’s commercial capital and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
