What we do

Evolve is a pro bono criminal justice development organisation. We use the experience and skills of legal experts to promote positive change in the criminal justice sector.

Our aim is to improve access to justice; build the capacity of lawyers, judges and institutions; and promote respect for human rights and the rule of law in criminal justice systems.

We currently focus on criminal justice delivery in Uganda. We work in close partnership with Uganda’s Justice, Law and Order Sector (‘JLOS’) to solve problems and promote criminal justice reform.
