Paralegal Skills Manual (Zambia)

This manual by Rising Foundations Zambia is an adaptation, for domestic use at grassroots level, of the materials presented at different ‘Paralegal Skills Training’ and Community Workshops and Local Cpurts since 2001. Participants from rural communities, the police-Victim Support Unit, traditional leaders, children, Paralegals, other stakeholders and individuals-men and women in rural communities have attended these workshops. The aims of the workshops were:

  • To raise awareness on Human and Legal Rights among village head persons, men and women in rural areas.
  • To create awareness on problems arising from violations of Human Rights and other Laws so as to enhance equal participation in development promotion and the protection of Human Rights.
  • To create a forum for discussing and sharing ideas pertaining to Human Rights, Child Rights, Marriage and Divorce Law, Gender Issues, Maintenance of Children and the Intestate Succession Act and to cultivate a Human Rights culture among the men and women in rural areas.
  •  To promote a sense of respect among and between men and women
  • Equip the participants with skills required in Negotiations and Mediation for them to be able to provide free legal assistance and ultimately create legal advice centers at community level.
