“Generally, lawyers are unwilling to devote the resources and time and to
specialize in the manner required to deal with legal problems in the rural
areas. The difficulty of overturning existing practices, language difficulties, the
barrenness and inscrutability of the law and the remoteness of the areas,
maintain an urban concentration of legal resources, and inhibit lawyers from
“the venturing into the interior”. Besides, professionals are removed from the
problems and needs of rural poor and see the work is unglamorous” 1
Lawyers at the Legal Resources Centre decided from the days that the institution
opens its doors to concentrate on legal issues relating to land, land tenure and in
later years development in the rural areas.
