PUBLIC DEFENDERS OFFICE, PROVIDING ACCESS TO JUSTICE IN KANO STATE
The Public Defenders Office, since its launch in June 2017 has assisted hundreds of indigents in need of legal aid and provides quality legal services—including litigation, mediation, legal representation, etc.
The Public Defenders Office regularly carries out community outreach campaigns, including legal clinics and radio awareness to create awareness and ensure citizens in need of legal services know where and how to get them.
These activities are carried out through the Greater Access to Defense and Justice project, which is funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement and implemented by PartnersGlobal, Partners West Africa Nigeria, the Democratic Action Group, and New-Rule LLC.
