Known to be in dire need of modernization, the wheels of the Nigerian Justice system can be said to be one that grinds too slowly, but WE are doing something about it.

Through the Justice Clock, we are automating the justice delivery process one state at a time. 

Following approval from the Lagos State Ministry of Justice, we are set to officially deploy Justice Clock, one of our tech platforms, to the Lagos State Ministry of Justice. The platform is designed to help improve the pace of criminal justice in Lagos State by automating key time-bound components of the Administration of Criminal Justice Law of Lagos State.

In the project’s design process, our tech team ensured that the platform is user-friendly and mirrors the already existing process.

Justice Clock will drive performance and efficiency, help track legal advice and charge sheet as well as quick issuance of same, the tech platform would provide an online repository for case files in compliance with best practices, and much more.

TRACKING: The Justice Clock optimally tracks the length of time spent by awaiting trial persons and ensures it complies with the Provisions of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act.

UPDATING: This tech platform avails detailed and periodic updates of cases and our legal intervention- thus, enabling the general public to know the status of cases.

LEGAL AID REPOSITORY: Helps you know more about the pendency of cases including civil and criminal cases. (A repository helps facilitate digital preservation of cases.)
