WELCOME TO THE WASHINGTON COLLEGE OF LAW

THE AFRICAN JUSTICE INITIATIVE

 

About Us

The African Justice Initiative (AJI) is a student-led organization of advocates working for greater justice in Africa at the American University Washington College of Law. AJI's mission is to create a forum for the WCL community to discuss the various complex legal and social issues that affect the African Continent. In effort to create increased discourse within the WCL community and beyond, each year AJI organizes a spring Founders Day symposium on a contemporary justice issue in Africa, and hosts several smaller events throughout the year. AJI additionally strives to address these issues by coordinating legal internships throughout the African continent. Previously, AJI sent interns to South Africa, Cameroon, Uganda and Ghana.
