The Pan African Lawyers Union (PALU) is developing a Directory of individuals, organizations and law firms offering or ready to offer pro bono legal representation, or any other form of legal aid, to indigent clients appearing before African continental and (sub) regional Courts and tribunals. This Directory will also include any established funds or facilities offering pro bono legal aid.

We call upon all individuals and entities offering, or ready to offer, such legal aid to fill a short online Questionnaire at

Please note the deadline for completing the questionnaire has now been extended to 10 November 2013.

The Directory will be included in a «Guide on Complementarity within the African Human Rights System», that we shall publish. It will also be availed online and be updated frequently. Its main scope is to promote access to justice for indigent applicants, to support partnerships with organizations offering legal aid, as well as for the use of the African international courts and tribunals aforementioned.

If you need any assistance filling the Questionnaire or if you need more information, please contact Ms. Irini Anastassiou at [email][email protected] or +255 (27) 254 3192/4.
