This project was aimed at providing pro bono legal aid for the poor and marginalized sectors of the society. The service had included legal advice and legal representation in court for citizens with low financial status. The centre had conducted researches and looked into cases that warrant public interest litigation.
OSJE designed the project and had been involved in all aspects of the legal aid centre from developing its operational manual to designing action plan of the Centre. OSJE had also retained two lawyers which effectively provided legal services at the centre.
Since the establishment of the center up until the year 2008 the legal aid centre had provided its regular service ranging from oral legal advice to preparation of pleadings to its beneficiaries. In the year 2008 OSJE was involved in rendering legal aid service in the legal aid centre under the auspices of the Ethiopia Bar Association located in the premises of the Federal High Court under the Network of Legal aid providers
