Sudreau Global Justice Institute

Strengthening Justice Systems. Defending the Defenseless.
Training 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, working to provide holistic solutions to systemic injustice and equip others to do the same.

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.
