Pursuant to the Project to Enhance Implementation of Criminal Justice and Anti-Corruption Laws, the Centre publishes monthly newsletters for stakeholders in anti-corruption
and criminal justice. These publications provide updates and succinct analyses of current issues with a view to aiding judges, lawyers and other actors in the system gain better understanding of the ACJA and anti-corruption laws.
This monthly publication also known as the Juritrust IN BRIEF Newsletter consists of monthly news reports and well researched articles. With the aid of researchers, the Centre published articles and case reviews on a variety of topics ranging from pre-trial, bail, ACJA remand timelines to organ sale & trafficking, forum shopping, trial in absentia etc. With over five hundred readers subscribed to the monthly publications, we have doubled our target/ beneficiaries from over two hundred readers in January, 2022.
Each publication has gone beyond creating awareness about the implementation of ACJA/ACJLs to aiding not just judges and magistrates in consistent interpretation of the ACJA/Ls but also other law researchers in their research works. Some of the feedbacks on the monthly newsletter noted in particular the rich content, and very enlightening, material that issues provide. Some of the feedback show readers recommending articles in the newsletter to their colleagues.
