Through its Legal Access Programme, Access to Justice pursues remedies for victims of human rights violations, alongside working to create and instate procedures, (or reform existing ones) to strengthen the protection of human rights.
Today, two States, (Lagos and Cross Rivers State), working with A2Justice, have taken action to reform, and reinstate long their dormant Coroner laws, that obligate Coroners to undertake inquest hearings upon every sudden or violent deaths, particularly deaths occurring in police custody. A number of other States are in different stages of reforming their Coroner laws. Under this programme too, A2Justice provides legal representation to families of victims of extrajudicial killings, as well as torture victims, winning justice and compensatory monetary reliefs for them.
Mustering Wider Support for Change through conferences and workshops
A2Justice uses conferences and consultative meetings to muster both stakeholder and public support for causes it pursues. These meetings engage stakeholders in discussion and debate and help to build consensus across board.
