Legal Aid

Since 2011 Street Law (U) has provided legal aid to more than 2000 democracy activists and victims of political repression. The organization was prominent for providing legal aid to activists in the walk to work demonstrations after the 2011 general elections and the September Buganda riots in Kampala, Mukono and Kayunga. Legal aid is extended to the beneficiaries both in courts and at Police stations. Legal aid services have been hampered by limited funds, hence benefitting areas mainly around Kampala and surrounding districts of Mukono, Wakiso and Mpigi.
