The South Sudan Law Society (SSLS) is a civil society organization based in Juba. Its mission is to strive for justice in society and respect for human rights and the rule of law in South Sudan. The SSLS manages projects in a number of areas, including legal aid and paralegal training, human rights awareness-raising, and capacity-building for legal professionals, traditional authorities, and government institutions.


SSLS’s programs include:

Legal Aid

The SSLS manages a number of legal aid clinics that provide free legal advice, mediation and courtroom representation to clients who would otherwise be unable to afford these services.

Constitutional Development
In a project entitled, Towards the Constitution of ‘Zol Meskin’ (the ‘common person’ in Juba Arabic), the SSLS and a coalition of civil society organizations are advocating for a constitution and constitution-making process that reflects the hopes and aspirations of the South Sudanese people.

Land Rights in Transition
Through its research and advocacy, the SSLS sheds light on the interplay between land and power in postwar South Sudan.
