What a Paralegal in Sierra Leone Needs to Know

By: Vivek Maru, Simeon Koroma

Timap for Justice, a pioneering Sierra Leonean NGO that provides basic justice services, launched its manual for community-based paralegals in September 2012. The manual offers guidance on basic law, including crime, contracts, and tort; paralegal skills, including mediation, advocacy, and community education; and government policy and procedure, in areas like agriculture, mining, and healthcare.

Here, Timap co-founders Vivek Maru and Simeon Koroma discuss how the manual came about and why it is important for Sierra Leone now.
