Access to justice is one of the most basic human rights. Disputes are common in every society, creating the need for fair formal, informal and traditional justice systems. Our work in this area is focuses on the Magistrate, Sharia and Customary courts, traditional justice systems and alternative dispute resolution mechanisms.

Justice is not only about people, but also about their businesses. Ensuring a speedy resolution of commercial disputes will increase economic growth.
