Africa Justice Foundation

The Africa Justice Foundation is an international development charity providing education, training and other capacity-building initiatives to help enhance the legal infrastructure in sub-Saharan Africa and realise Africa's potential for growth.

Founded 2011

  • Mission statement

    AJF’s mission is to enhance the legal capacity of the public, private and not-for-profit sectors through training and professional skills development implemented via strategic partnerships with governments, bar associations and legal bodies in Sub-Saharan Africa. Through this we aim to contribute to the development of robust, stable and predictable legal systems that meet the needs of both the citizens of those countries and the regional and globally competitive environments in which they are a part of.

    A robust and reliable legal system is an integral part of the infrastructure that enables emerging economies to thrive – economically, politically and socially. Laws, legal capacity and the wider justice system constitute the ‘invisible’ infrastructure, less visible than roads, power stations, ports and broadband internet cables, but equally critical for economic, political and social growth.
