Young Professionals Programme for Legal Empowerment (YPPLE)

The Young Professionals Programme for Legal Empowerment (YPPLE) anchored by Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) is designed to equip young legal professionals to become powerful change agents by giving them the opportunity to develop holistic understanding of how legal empowerment can contribute to social change through an intimate engagement with field realities.

With the successes of its previous editions behind it, YPPLE is now entering its fourth year. In the first two years of the programme, CSJ placed 14 young aspiring researchers in its field areas, where they engaged with grassroots realities and in the process grew immensely both as a professional as well as a person. The programme allowed these young minds to pursue their true interests, with each individual finding something that they can call their own, be it: a particular area of law, a work profile or a social cause they care about. Many YPPLEs continue to be associated with CSJ beyond the one year of the programme and are helping CSJ to fulfill its purpose towards society.

Candidates interested in applying for the Programme must send in the following in their application:

  1. a) personal statement of purpose detailing the candidates motivations and reasons for applying to the Programme. Candidates must also be clear about their areas of interest and expectations from the Programme.
  2. b) updated CV along with details of any similar prior work experience.
