In recent years, women and children's rights activists in Sudan have campaigned against forced unions and marriage of underage girls, a widespread phenomenon in a country where the law allows children over the age of 10 to marry.
The court is full.
A teen bride in Sudan has been sentenced to hang for stabbing the man she was forced to marry - after he raped her while his cousins held her down. Al-Imam volunteered to represent the teen after her original lawyer took themselves off the case.

Noura Hussein had no desire to get married.
Girl's lawyer told reporters that the father Nura persuaded her to return home, but as soon as she returned home, it was immediately handed over to the legal wife.
Hussein, whose family has disowned her, was found guilty of premeditated murder in April and sentenced to death on Thursday. A team of Sudanese activists are organising a protest at the US Capitol in Washington on Saturday.
"The case of Noura is different".
Because Noura was a victim of rape, many are calling for her release, and for her not to be punished at all. "The death penalty is the ultimate cruel, inhuman, and degrading punishment, and to apply it to a rape victim only highlights the failure of the Sudanese authorities to acknowledge the violence she endured".
