Legal Aid Commission of Sri Lanka (LAC) is set up under the provisions of Legal Aid Act No 27 of 1978 with the objective of providing legal aid to all the deserving persons in the country. It recognizes that legal assistance to the vulnerable groups of a country constitutes an important segment of the administration of justice. LAC is the foremost amongst the various other institutions and organizations that cater to this important requirement, mainly due to its sustainability and stability.
The scope of work of LAC includes provision of legal assistance to vulnerable groups of the country. It is created with the vision of creating ‘a society where all deserving Sri Lankans irrespective of their economic or social status, gender, caste, creed or nationality or the disabled have equal access to justice.’ The services provided by LAC also include provision of legal advice, litigation and awareness creation.
LAC provides legal awareness programmes and clinics to different target groups such as women, children, elders, migrant workers, differently abled people, people with HIV, indigenous people, police officers, government officers, school children, lawyers and apprentices and undergraduates.
Against this background and in order to support LAC’s legal awareness initiatives, UNDP aims to undertake the development of a new website and web application for LAC, to provide the latest features and user-friendly content, enabling the public to have easy access to the LAC services offered island wide.
