Access to Justice

During the first year, Iraq Access to Justice completed a Preliminary Assessment that identifies initial priority populations and partners.
The program will also complete assessments of partner NGOs, law school curriculum reform efforts, options for law school clinics in Iraq and Kurdistan of Iraq, and options for community-based legal aid clinics set up by NGOs and professional organizations.
