BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE

Gavel is a civic tech organization aimed at improving the pace of justice delivery through tech. It uses tech to track cases and provide help to speed up trials or where necessary provide pro bono legal representation. Citizens can register and make a case/complain on the platform and after providing all the requirements the platform links the cases to pro bon lawyers available. Currently Gavel has 54 open cases.

The African Civic Tech Atlas is a work in progress (and a labour of love) for us but we may miss some initiative that needs updating. If your initiative needs to be updated on the database, kindly follow the instructions on the “Update Your Initiative” tab.
