JustRight Scotland (JRS) is Scotland's legal centre for justice and human rights. We use the law to defend and extend people’s rights. All our projects work in areas in which gaps in access to justice lead to discrimination and disadvantage. We believe in inclusion and social justice collaboration, which means that we work with other organisations to develop new ways to provide expert legal advice and information and influence law and policy. We have already established successful projects advancing women’s rights, supporting migrants and assisting victims of trafficking.
