Introduction

The Legal Aid Project (LAP) was established by the Uganda Law Society in 1992, with assistance from the Norwegian Bar Association to provide legal assistance to indigent and vulnerable people in Uganda.

The Project was born out of the realization that apart form the state brief system that handles only capital offences, and the huge backlog of cases, there is no statutory free Legal Aid provision in Uganda despite the fact that a large part of Uganda's population lives below the poverty line, and without means to access justice.

Todate, the project has helped and continues to help thousands of indigent men, women and children to realize their legal and Human Rights.
LAP has branches in Kabarole, Kabale, Masindi, Jinja, Gulu and Luzira with its head office in Kampala.
