This sub-project aimed to contribute to enhancing access to justice for marginalized and vulnerable communities in Uganda. Building on the results achieved during the first phase of the sub-project, the Uganda Law Society (ULS) provided legal advice, counselling services, representation in court and conducting mediation sessions for vulnerable persons in the communities of Gulu, Jinja, Kabale, Kabarole, Kampala, and Masindi. In order to increase stakeholder participation in the provision of legal aid services, ULS delivered a series of sensitization sessions on human rights, gender and available legal services, and disseminated related information, communication and education materials in the communities. Furthermore, the implementing partner delivered training sessions for community-based volunteers on basic laws and procedures in the area of land rights, succession, children and family laws to enhance on-spot legal services in the communities.
