The Centre for Law and Development (CLD) at Qatar University College of Law (QU-LAWC) recently hosted a guest lecture on ‘Innovations in Access to Justice for Africa’s Poorest: Lessons Learned, Insights Gained’.

The lecture was presented by Dr Adam Dubin, professor of politics, New York University - Madrid campus, and assistant professor of law, faculty of law, Universidad Pontificia Comillas (Madrid).

The lecture was part of the CLD guest lecture series.

Dr Dubin discussed the recent innovations in access to justice in sub-Saharan Africa, highlighting both the successes and challenges in bringing access to justice to poor, vulnerable and geographically isolated populations.

He also discussed the recent technological developments that have been implemented to expand justice, along with other changes currently shaping the justice landscape in the Sub-Saharan Africa region, including the use of university legal clinics and one-stop shops to provide more multi-dimensional approaches to providing justice.

Further, he highlighted the challenges still facing Sub-Saharan Africa and offered some recommendations for advancing justice in the region.

CLD director Dr Jon Truby said: “CLD is focusing on research in technological advancements in a number of legal fields and the available advantages. The access to justice opportunities offered from this case study mean similar techniques can be employed elsewhere.”
