OAL’s Human Right Advocacy through Public Interest Litigation (PIL) Programme

The OAL public interest Litigation programme was established to advance human rights through organized and consistent public interest litigation. Today, OAL PIL programme has extended to issues of public policy, governance and constitutionalism. A country study of the legal protection of human rights in Nigeria by Olisa Agbakoba for the International Centre for the Legal Protection of Human Rights [INTERIGHTS] and the Inter-African Network for Human Rights and Development [AFRONET] identified a critical need for specialist public interest law service providers.
