    Access to justice is described as a fundamental right, as well as a key means to defend other rights. For justice to be real, it has to be available, affordable and accessible to all. Therefore, availability and accessibility of institutions (whether formal or informal) both in terms of facilities and human resource is crucial to empower the people to realize and protect their human rights as enshrined in the Constitution of Uganda and other international covenants such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948), the Convention on Civil and Political Rights (1966) to which Uganda is signatory.
