Currently, ULA has LRICs in the districts of;
In the LRICs, Legal Aid is offered to the communities. The aim of this is improve access to justice and legal protection of the rights of women, children and other vulnerable people.
ULA handles clients with land disputes. Initially most of these cases were resolved through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). Cases that needed court action were handled through linkages with ULA’s Individual members who are Advocates. ULA has now started to recruit its own Advocates for in-house litigation. It is aimed that a higher percentage of litigation will be carried out by staff with only a less percentage reliance on external Advocates.
