Description: INL is seeking applications to expand the capabilities of the public defense services in Kano, Nigeria by establishing a state-level Public Defender’s Office that responds efficiently to the needs of the indigent and results in a reduction in the number of pre-trial detainees. Following successful completion of this program, it is envisioned that the Kano State government would fully take over administering, managing, and financing the newly established public defense office with assistance from the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Kano Branch.
