Strategic Litigation in Constitutional Issues
We were involved in litigation in the court of law, through public interest litigation (PIL). Our work comprised of draft the petition, representing at case before the bench, engaging in full research and preparing court submission in the form of amicus brief. We have been able to use strategic litigation to make positive changes in human rights arena.
Some of the landmark cases represented/argued by the team members of our organization which have yielded significant results.
