This edition of Case Notes covers the legal aid activities carried out by the ILF-Nepal before the courts and quasi-judicial bodies while representing indigent people accused of crimes.

This is the first edition of the ILF-Nepal Case Notes authored solely by ILF-Nepal’s Country Director, Ajay Shankar Jha “Rupesh”, as part of the process of completing the transition of ILF-Nepal to local leadership. After joining ILF-Nepal as an advocate in 2008, Mr. Shankar Jha demonstrated exemplary leadership ability, becoming a Regional Director before being named Country Director in 2011.
