Greater Access to Defense and Justice in Kano State

Located in the North-West of Nigeria, Kano State is the economic hub of Northern Nigeria. With high poverty rates, few public defense lawyers, expensive legal fees, and a lack of knowledge of available resources, citizens are often unable to access fair legal representation. Funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL), Partners is working closely with Partners West Africa Nigeria (PWAN), the Democratic Action Group, and our strategic partner New-Rule LLC to provide effective legal aid, rights-based education, case data collection and management through the development of a Case Management System (CMS), and increase access to justice for Kano’s indigent community.
