Sudreau Global Justice Institute

Protect the Vulnerable. Advocate for Change.
Train the Next Generation.

There are over 40 million slaves in the world today. Girls all over the world are denied the right to an education simply because they are girls. Thousands of vulnerable people around the world are subject to unjust detainment with no access or right to an attorney.

What We Do

We are an international organization, based out of Pepperdine Caruso School of Law, fighting to protect the vulnerable by strengthening justice systems, and training the next generation of global attorneys.

Project Spotlight

Juvenile Justice Defense Project

Tragically, Henry's story is not unique. Thousands of kids all around the world are subject to unjust imprisonment and have no right or means to afford an attorney. We plan to change that. In 2020 we launched our first Juvenile Justice Defense Project in partnership with the Ugandan Government. The goal? To build a sustainable Juvenile Public Defender's Office that ensures every child in Uganda's criminal justice system is provided an attorney.
