I hold a Bachelor of Laws from Chancellor College, University of Malawi obtained in December, 2010. In the same month I joined Legal Aid Bureau, a Government office mandated to provide legal aid to indigent persons. I work as Chief Legal Aid Advocate and head one of the only three regional Legal Aid Bureau offices in Malawi. I am also the current Treasurer of the Mzuzu Chapter of Malawi Law Society.

Whilst studying for my LLB I interned at the Attorney General’s Chambers, Directorate of Public Prosecutions, Crown & Duke Private Law Firm, Prison, Police and PAS (Paralegal Advisory Service).

I am a general legal practitioner hence handle both criminal and civil matters especially regarding human rights, land, family, deceased estates and employment. I have expertise in advocacy, capital defence and alternative dispute resolution.

By joining the network I hope to learn and share ideas on how to best reach out to the indigent and marginalized people so as to legally empower them.
