IBJ Myanmar Criminal Defense Practice Manual

Legal aid for the criminally accused is essential to ensure access to justice and rule of law, and Justice Centres provide free legal representation for poor and vulnerable people accused of crimes to fight against violations of fair trial and human rights. MyJustice partner International Bridges to Justice has published the Myanmar Criminal Defense Practice Manual, which provides practical analysis and advice for criminal defense lawyers in Myanmar to provide a robust defense on behalf of their clients. The Manual is part of an ongoing effort to build the capacity of legal professionals to defend the rights of the accused, create a fairer criminal justice system, and expand access to justice.
