About the HiiL Justice Accelerator
The HiiL Justice Accelerator finds and supports the world’s best justice entrepreneurs in order to create access to justice for all.
Particularly in Africa and the Middle East but also across the world, through local partners and supporters we locate justice entrepreneurs and in many cases add them to our “Innovation Database.”
Through a series of local training events as well as the yearly Justice Entrepreneurship School in The Hague, we provide training to justice entrepreneurs in the skills they need most to manage and lead their innovations.
By offering seed funding, as well as access to potential future follow-on funding, we fund justice entrepreneurs with the cash they need to grow their innovations.
Finally we offer acceleration and business services to justice entrepreneurs to help get them on the right track to scaling their innovations.
What is Justice Innovation?
In the way that justice is synonymous with fairness, justice can refer to a broad range of issues. Within this broad range of issues, the HiiL Justice Accelerator is focused on a particular aspect of justice: the legal element.
The HiiL Justice Accelerator is focused on finding and supporting innovations that create rights awareness, provide resolution of disputes and legal problems or improve efficiency and transparency in the existing legal system.”
In general, we find that justice innovations fall into three categories:
Legal information, awareness and education: legal education & rights awareness, data and transparency;
Access to justice, legal services and dispute resolution: legal services – ‘Lawyers 2.0’, dispute systems and procedures, human rights and protective measures;
Inclusive justice policies: rule-making and governance, compliance and enforcement, advocacy and corruption fighting.

• Highly driven and talented individuals who want to see more access to justice and more justice innovation in the context they live and work in.
• Individuals who have a very specific skill set that can be useful for joining a justice startup or to create disruptive justice innovation but who have no idea.
