The legal system in Chad faces numerous challenges, affecting residents’ understanding of their rights and trust in justice administration. These issues stem from a lack of tools and internal organizational flaws, limiting the effectiveness of court and jail clerks. Political reconstruction and pacification have led to numerous transfers and appointments of magistrates and civil workers with inadequate training and experience. This has resulted in gaps in the implementation and interpretation of existing legislation and knowledge of new laws. Additionally, the majority of Chadians are illiterate and ignorant of their legal rights and processes.

Access to justice is hampered by various issues, including court costs, distance, communication gaps, and lack of legal representation. The project to support the criminal chain of command aims to strengthen the rule of law in Chad by hiring a national trainee to provide technical and financial support for legal and judicial aid to vulnerable individuals, particularly survivors of gender-based violence.
