What We Do
National Judicial Conduct and Disability Law Project, Inc. (NJCDLP) is a nonprofit, grassroots legal reform organization. It was created to combat abuses of America's legal system that are facilitated by judicial misconduct. Its basic objective is legal reform through litigation, galvanized by every imaginable form of advocacy that can lawfully and effectively help preserve the "rule of law" in the United States on a case by case basis.
NJCDLP focuses on judicial collusion, but its ability to challenge that form of official misconduct through litigation has changed.

Judicial Accountability Activists
Seek International Rebuke of
Persecution and Torture Through
U.S. Legal System Abuse
The United Nations Human Rights Committee (HRC) may investigate allegations that the U.S. legal system is regularly used to persecute or torture U.S. whistleblowers and judicial critics/gadflies. A proposed international class action for the group was mailed this week from the U.S. to the Committee in Geneva, Switzerland. The three (3) named complainants are Rodney A. Logal, his wife attorney Zena Crenshaw-Logal*, and Dr. Andrew D. Jackson, pictured above.
NJCDLP Affiliates Expand Their International Human Rights and Anti-Corruption Advocacy:
Members of the U.S. Friends of Marafa Committee (USFMC) and Marafa Watch (MW) supporters planned for an April 2014 protest outside the Cameroon Embassy in Washington, D.C. to commemorate the April 2012 arrest of Minister Marafa Hamidou Yaya as well as MW's first year anniversary. This is their story. This is Marafa's story.
Marafa is a former Minister of Interior and Secretary-General (Chief of Staff) at the Presidency of the Republic of Cameroon.
MW is a U.S.-based, grassroots movement for appropriate international review of Marafa's politically motivated conviction and imprisonment. USFMC is an outgrowth of that movement.
This documentary introduces viewers to Marafa's plight and seeks to explain why Americans should care and be willing to push for his freedom.
COALITION FOR COURT TRANSPARENCY
NJCDLP and National Forum On Judicial Accountability (NFOJA) are members of the Coalition for Court Transparency calling for cameras in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Lobbying of ABA to Spearhead Prosecutor Reform:
"Our call to action is for help encouraging the ABA to promulgate a model rule that hinders prosecutors in using America's criminal justice system to retaliate against whistleblowers", says attorney Zena Crenshaw-Logal, Coalition Spokesperson.
“Blind deference to prosecutors and their prosecution choices no longer seems prudent” says Dr. Sandra Nunn, a business ethics expert who became a national security whistleblower after years of decorated federal law enforcement. Dr. Nunn referenced New York Governor Cuomo, noting, "He apparently realizes that prosecutors may regularly thwart police accountability. Should we not acknowledge the possibility of them deliberately or recklessly undermining whistleblower protection?”
