Who we Are


TAWJA is a professional association of women judges and magistrates of all levels in the Judiciary of Tanzania. It was formed in 2000. Under the Constitution of TAWJA, the word judge includes magistrate. TAWJA is, nonetheless, a voluntary, charitable organisation so women judges are free to join it by paying membership fees. At the moment all the women Court of Appeal and High Court justices are TAWJA members. Women registrars, resident, district and primary court magistrates have joined the association in large numbers.
