This is the core programme of the organisation in which children, mostly through their parents or guardians and custodians, are given legal assistance in criminal and civil cases. The assistance includes legal advice, drafting legal documents and representation at police stations and in courts. JCT employs various strategies in order to reach more vulnerable children with legal aid. While the organisation has offices in Harare, Bulawayo and Mutare, it carries out Legal Aid  Mobile Clinics in areas outside these. Currently, the organisation is covering Chinhoyi, Bindura, Beit Bridge, Chegutu, Mhondoro, Mutasa, and Rusape. The organisation also works with Community Paralegals in these areas in their respective communities to ensure access to justice by children at community level. Further, JCT works with Volunteer Lawyers in Harare, Bulawayo, Gweru, Mutare, Chinhoyi, Bindura and Chegutu who complement its own lawyers in representing children in court.
