Cameron McCollum Discusses Access to Justice in the Developing World -- The Do One Better! Podcast
Director of the Pepperdine Caruso Law Sudreau Global Justice Institute Cameron S. McCollum discusses access to justice in developing countries, the current state of affairs in specific countries in Africa, and opportunities for improvement, in the Do One Better! Podcast.
From the Do One Better! Podcast:
The Sudreau Global Justice Institute ("SGJI") is an international human rights organization NGO based out of Pepperdine University. SGJI partners with governments around the world to advance the rule of law and provide access to justice to vulnerable populations. They believe that a healthy justice system is key to eradicating systemic suffering and unlocking a community's potential. A well functioning justice system not only protects the vulnerable, it is also the foundation upon which it becomes possible for all other forms of community development to flourish.
They currently have an active partnership with the Ugandan government to pilot the nation's first Public Defender's Office, and they continue to train and provide strategic assistance in Uganda's implementation of plea bargaining into its criminal justice system. In addition, they have a team in Accra, Ghana where they are working alongside the Ghanian government and the U.S. State Department to further similar plea bargaining and access to justice initiatives.
