A recent dutch documentary called "Recht voor allen" (Justice for all) shows that sms technology can be used to disseminate legal information to clients in remote area.
There is enough information in this documentary in English: http://www.npo.nl/vpro-tegenlicht/16-10-2016/VPWON_1246113. The documentary will start after approx. 1 minute
One of the examples discussed in this documentary is a project in Kenya: the M-Haki platform: http://rsr.akvo.org/en/project/2552/update/14865/.
In the same documentary there is an interview with one of the staff members of HIIL http://www.hiil.org/ . The mission of HIIL is: “to become an exemplary social enterprise that makes justice journeys work and universally accessible”. There are quite some projects going on all over the world; see http://www.hiil.org/projects/?type=current.
