Dilla University


As part of its community service, the School has established Free Legal Aid Centre in Dilla Town since October, 2010. The centre was founded in collaboration with the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission that has extended financial support to accomplish its goals. The Centre provides free legal aid services for the community, in particular to the disadvantaged sections of the society who have not the financial capacity to hire private attorneys by themselves. By doing so, the centre strives for ensuring access to justice for the community, notably women, senior citizens, children, persons with disabilities and HIV positive individuals. In addition, the service contributes a lot in redressing human rights violation and injustice suffered by citizens.

Currently, the School has engaged in giving training for Bachelor of Law (LL. B) students in three different programs (Regular, Weekend and Summer Programs).
