To empower women lawyers, a vulnerable class, through hands on legal practitioner training so that there is a positive domino effect of inclusion whereby having more skilled women lawyers leads to more women in the courts.
We will train 200 female lawyers under the direct supervision of prominent Barristers, High Court Advocates, and academic specialists. We seek to transform and challenge the exclusion of women lawyers in lower and upper courts.
