Legal and Paralegal Aid

Access to Legal Assistance and Paralegal Services, Rights Awareness, and Conflict Transformation Mechanisms (LAPSRA) brings together mainstream legal system and indigenous customary laws on equal footing to widen access to legal and paralegal services by communities who are conscious of their rights and duties under existing mandated mechanisms. In close coordination with government agencies, local government units, volunteer lawyers, and law students, conflict-sensitive legal assistance programs and paralegal services are enhanced.
