Everyone who faces a conflict or crime should have access to legal support that is effective, safe, understandable, affordable and perhaps most importantly, available when it’s needed. Hiil has made it their mission that by 2030, 150 million people will be able to prevent or resolve their most pressing justice problems.

Hiil is coming to Lagos for the Lagos Justice Innovating Conference which is the biggest conference of its scale and organised by HiiL. It brings together people at the top of their game in the legal and justice sector, in and outside of Nigeria. If you want easy access to justice for all Nigerians or you play a role in the system of justice administration or you will like to play a role in bringing innovation to the justice system, then make it a date on Friday, September 21, 2018 and join us at the Landmark Event Center, Lagos.

The Lagos Justice Innovating Conference is the biggest conference of its scale and calibre, organised by HiiL. The event brings together people at the top of their game in the legal and justice sector, in and outside of Nigeria, to address how the Nigerian Justice system could be improved, and to tackle making justice more user-friendly in Nigeria, by combining data and innovations.
