With the aim of promoting public interest lawyering and the pro bono spirit in Uganda, the Network of Public Interest Lawyers (NETPIL) was officially launched in May 2015. The establishment of the Network was spearheaded by the Public Interest Law Clinic (PILAC) at Makerere University, School of Law to foster greater engagement of lawyers in public interest litigation and advocacy towards achieving social justice and greater protection of fundamental rights for all.

Its vision is a legal profession committed to serving the justice needs of society.

It’s mission is to promote and strengthen public interest lawyering as a means to pursue social justice and the protection of human rights.

It currently has over 40 members active in its six thematic working groups.
