The Hard to Reach Districts Clerkship Program:
The Law Development Centre has in the recent past introduced a “Bar Course Student Clerkship Program in Hard to Reach areas.” The program aims at complementing the Justice Law and Order Sector (JLOS) objectives of ensuring access to justice for all and reduction in case backlog. This is achieved through the use of Bar Course Students to offer free legal representation to indigent clients in Hard to Reach Districts as identified by JLOS.
The students are empowered by the Advocate (Students Practice) Regulations 2004 to offer legal representation up to the level of the Chief Magistrates at no cost under the supervision of a Magistrate or an Advocate. All Bar Course Students are eligible to apply for Student Practice Certificates. This year the Centre is offering support to ten (10) Bar Course Students to undertake clerkship in ten (10) hard to reach districts of Nakapiripirit, Moyo, Namayingo, Buliisa, Adjumani, Amuru, Abim, Kagadi, Kotido and Serere.
The “Bar Course Student Clerkship Program in Hard to Reach areas” entrenches in the student community service values and helps improve access to justice through the students’ service. The Judiciary has been very supportive of this initiative in the past years, particularly by providing space for the students and further providing supervisory support to the students.
