Arab Centre for the Independence of the Judiciary and the Legal Profession (ACIJLP)
The Arab Center for the Independence of the Judiciary and the Legal Profession is a regional organization established in Cairo in March 1997. It works for the reinforcement of the independence of the judiciary and the legal profession, the rule of law, and the respect for human rights and basic freedoms in Egypt and Arab countries. International human rights standards are the foundation of its activities.
Objectives of the Center:
-To support and reinforce the rule of law and the independence of the judiciary in the Arab region through calling for sufficient safeguards for the judiciary
-To support and reinforce the situation of lawyers and the legal profession in the Arab region
-To improve legislation in the Arab region and revoke the laws that restrict freedoms and violate human rights, particularly those related to the right of individuals to be tried before competent judges.
-To promote human rights standards ratified by Arab states and to promote using these standards by national courts in the Arab region.
-To raise the awareness of the safeguards given to the legal profession by various constitutions as well as by international standards on the legal profession; and to raise lawyers’ defence skills in human rights cases.See more
