Paralegal Advisory Service Institute, Malawi

Clifford Msiska, who received his legal training in Europe, is national director of the Paralegal Advisory Service in Malawi. The Paralegal Advisory Service (PASI) started in Malawi in May 2000 as an initiative of Penal Reform International (PRI), which sought to link local NGOs with the Ministry of Justice and Malawi’s Prison Service. In a country where lawyers are few, PASI’s national presence helps ensure that detainees have some interaction with a legal professional.
