About Project Expedite Justice

Project Expedite Justice (PEJ) is a United States-based NGO with 501(c)(3) charitable organization status founded in 2016.

PEJ's mission is to use all available legal options to seek justice for individuals who are inadequately protected under the law, who cannot access legal resources, and who are exploited by governments, corporations, or others.

PEJ applies a novel, victim-centered approach to addressing mass atrocities. PEJ's three-step model includes training, mentoring, and providing independent legal consulting. We partner with and train local lawyers and investigators to collect, analyze, and preserve evidence according to international legal standards. Without evidence, there can be no accountability. We further build local capabilities and advance the justice process through case-specific mentoring and strategic guidance to local legal practitioners and investigators. Finally, we partner with local NGOs, pro bono law firms, and legal clinics to represent victims of international crimes and serious human rights abuses in court or alternative judicial mechanisms.

We have projects in various countries and are an inclusive team that includes people working remotely from many different places, including several countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, and the USA. We are deeply committed to increasing the opportunity for lawyers from the global majority or global south to participate in international Rule of Law-based non-profits. People from countries from the global majority are encouraged to apply for this role.
