What is the PICS project?
The Public Interest Casework Support (PICS) project provides pro bono casework support and assistance for lawyers and human rights organisations in Malawi and Tanzania to enhance the effectiveness of local lawyers through litigation and promote strong human rights precedents in the national and regional courts.
Through the PICS project, UK-based barristers provide advice on case preparation, identify relevant case authorities and precedents from relevant jurisdictions, assist with drafting and amending of submissions, undertake research and provide legal opinions on human rights and public interest cases under consideration or being litigated.
How can I request assistance?
