JusDraft - a word from the founders


At Epoq Legal, we believe everyone should have access to justice.

South Africa is home to 57.7 million people, many of whom simply cannot afford or don’t have access to legal services. As such, they are reliant on non-profit organisations who in turn partner with law firms and other institutions in order to make services like advice or legal services available.

JusDraft provides NPO’s and other organisations the necessary information to make legal services available to those in need.

In 2018 we were invited to take part in HiiL’s Innovating Justice Challenge and ultimately entered their prestigious Justice Accelerator program. Together with various supporters we designed and built a platform that provides non-profit organisations with a range of information and related and supporting to enable them to help people in the communities they serve.

We approached various organisations who share the mission of helping millions of people and together we’ve created JusDraft.

Together we believe we can make a difference!
