We Can: The Stories of Paralegals’ Search for Identity, Efforts, Success and Ongoing Struggle for Legitimization

By: Centre for Social Justice

In this collection of personal paralegal accounts, the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) seeks to capture the experiences of paralegals in Gujarat, India as a model for other non-governmental organizations. These narratives argue that if justice delivery mechanisms hope to overcome case backlogs and other inefficiencies, paralegals must be recognized as equal partners in the process of access to justice. The final chapter discusses the specific needs and spaces, such as prisons, counseling centers, police stations, family courts, etc., where paralegals need to be legitimized.
