The Pulida Wo App by Uganda Law Society (ULS). Extending Pro Bono Legal Services to the Community

Pulida Wo is a Mobile Application developed by the Uganda Law Society (ULS) to extend Pro Bono Legal Aid Services to the masses. Pulida Wo may be translated to mean Your Lawyer/Advocate. For smartphone users, the Android Application is available for download on Google Play Store. The Application can be installed on smartphones running Android Version 5.0 and above.

How it works

Once installed on your smartphone, you will need to login with either your Gmail or Facebook account. Pulida Wo will also require access to your Location service in order to notify you of the nearest advocate.

In order to extend services to the non-smartphone users, ULS has also incorporated a USSD code. All a user has to do is dial *284*14# in order to get connected to an advocate closest to your current location. The ULS will in the month of October 2019 conduct countrywide trainings for lawyers and the public on how to use the Pulida Wo App.
