The Africa Justice Foundation’s (AJF) mission is to build legal capacity in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors through education and professional skills training implemented via partnerships with governments, academic institutions, Bar associations, and legal bodies in sub-Saharan Africa.
We aim to contribute to the development of robust, stable and predictable legal systems that meet the needs of both the citizens of those countries and the regional and globally competitive environments of which they are a part.
