3.3 Land Rights in Myanmar

For this case study, you will watch a video and read a brief article. First, watch the video below to follow a paralegal in rural Myanmar seeking to find justice from land violations by the military junta. This video was recorded before the military coup in 2021. Since the coup, the space for how to influence justice has changed considerably but many paralegals are finding ways to bravely, and often quietly, continue their work.

This video shows how one paralegal can help a community know and use the law. Read this brief article to read how a paralegal was able to take the individual cases like the one above and change how the law was applied system-wide.

After watching the video and reading the article, please proceed to the quiz to check your learning.
