There are multiple problems concering the accessibility of justice in eastern Congo: - On the demand side for justice: ignorance of the law and procedures by the population, lack of funding to support the costs of justice and geographical remoteness of legal services. - On the supply side of justice: lack of human and material resources, gaps in training of justice personnel. The project acts on the two levels. It provides for the promotion of free judicial assistance by supporting the operation of the Free Consultations Offices(FCO) of the bar associations, and in parallel the capacity-building of lawyers and judicial defenders. It also plans to deploy mobile justice services (lawyers visiting people in prison, mobile legal clinics) and to support the Department of Justice in organizing mobile courts. In addition, to address the problem of ignorance of the law, all activities will be accompanied by awareness raising sessions and information.;
