A Paralegal Memoir

By: Daniel Sesay

Namati’s Daniel Sesay has written a memoir of his decade as a community-based paralegal in Sierra Leone. Using case studies and stories he explains clearly the multiple, flexible and innovative ways in which grassroots advocates can bring justice to places and people that lawyers and the law don’t usually reach. He describes how paralegals interact with traditional, customary justice systems, with local courts and with branches of government, such as the police and military. In particular he explains the role of basic justice in stabilising a post-conflict country like Sierra Leone.
