The Paralegal’s Handbook – PASUNE

By: Paralegal Support Network (PASUNE)

This handbook has been developed by the Paralegal Support Network (PASUNE). PASUNE as a network of leading human rights organizations involved in paralegal training has been working towards standardizing the content and methods of training paralegals in Kenya. As part of that process in the year 2003 it developed a curriculum for community paralegal workers. The curriculum has been very useful in ensuring that all organizations involved in paralegal training cover an agreed set of issues in the process of training and that the eventual trainees are of a certain quality.

This handbook is intended primarily for the use of paralegals. It is also to be used by trainers’ together with the curriculum and trainer’s guide also developed by PASUNE. It should be noted that paralegalism aims at providing legal knowledge to members of society. The handbook is divided into twenty three distinct chapters, each covering a separate area of the law
