The National Association of Women Judges Uganda (NAWJU)

The National Association of Women Judges of Uganda (NAWJU) is a non-governmental membership organization composed of 86 female judicial officers in Uganda. Members are drawn from both the lower and higher benches and share a commitment to “fair administration of justice and liaise with other National Associations to advocate for the rule of law and to engage in research”

WHO WE ARE

NAWJU operates on the premise that through informed leadership, female judicial officers can be catalysts for social transformation. Although NAWJU is an association of women judges, the focus of its work is not strictly limited to issues concerning women; the association rather focuses on strengthening access to justice in all its aspects for vulnerable populations. These include women, children, youth, the elderly, people with disabilities and other underprivileged groups.
