NULAI in 2012 developed two publications supporting prison pretrial detainee work of law clinics. This was prior to the enactment of Administration of Criminal Justice Act and laws across the federation. These publications, Handbook on Prison Pre-trial Detainee Law Clinic and Manual on Prison Pre-trial Detainee Law Clinic, have provided the main resources propelling criminal justice law clinics since 2012. However, there was a need to find a way to introduce the novel innovations of ACJA to students learning and law clinic practice.
It provides detailed lesson plan, methodology and activities broken into twelve (12) lessons of the following topics: Criminal Justice System in Nigeria; Rights of Defendants under The ACJA; Arrest; Pretrial Detention and Remand; Bail; Investigation in Pretrial Defence; Records, Filing and Case Management Systems; Non-Custodial Alternatives; Street Law-ACJA; Ethics & Professional Responsibility; Monitoring Implementation of ACJA; Partnerships, Collaborations & Pretrial Justice. It also provides additional chapters on training reports for law teachers and law students on supervision and investigation. These reports provide further guidance that supports the articulated lessons.
