Call for Proposals: Justice Centre Expansion Grant

MyJustice seeks a partner organisation to establish new justice centres in four additional states and regions in Myanmar to complement MyJustice current support to the Yangon and Mawlamyaing Justice Centres. The centres provide legal advice, assistance and representation in civil and criminal matters for the poor and vulnerable, and help raise people’s understanding of their legal rights and obligations, including through collaborations and linkages with community-based paralegals and other service providers. Through this project, MyJustice aims to promote a community of practice around criminal defence for the poor, support capacity development for criminal defence lawyers, and build on the experiences of the existing justice centres to expand the availability of high quality indigent criminal defence services in Myanmar.
