I am a 28 year old male Ugandan, working with Uganda Christian Lawyers' Fraternity as a legal assistant with a 4 year's working experience. I have basically been concentrating on the development of legal Information, education and communication materials that are distributed to communities, as well as training prisoners on how to represent themselves in courts of law, sensitizing of communities on their basic rights and screening of clients for legal aid representation.
I am hoping to link up with individuals within the Justice, Law and order sector with whom I can share best practices to enable me and my organisation be more result yielding.
