In 2011, JAA, in conjunction with the Washington School of Law, trained the first local faculty from Uganda to organize and train Ugandan Advocates. The faculty took over the conduct of trial advocacy training and in 2017 formed Justice Advocacy Uganda. Since its inception these programmes started, over 500 advocates have been trained in trial advocacy and over 80 advocates in teaching trial advocacu. .
