The LCF supports access to justice projects in the developing world, particularly in East Africa, through it's CLEAR partnerships.

Local lawyers manage these projects and seek to represent vulnerable and marginalised communities, regardless of their background, or religious belief, by informing them of their basic legal rights and offering free advice and representation to those who have no means to pay for it.

In carefully selected cases, CLEAR has sought to highlight injustices through public interest litigation and advocacy specialising in criminal justice, public law and family law.

Those represented include street children arbitrarily arrested by the police, accused people who have waited for up to 10 years for trial and widows who have been forced off their land and made destitute by their dead husband's family.
