Liberian Lawyers Learn How to Use Paralegals

Two members of the Association of the Female Lawyers of Liberia (AFELL) have returned home from an International Legal Assistance Consortium (ILAC) training program held in South Africa. The intensive training program primarily dealt with the use of community-based paralegals. These rural paralegals provide legal services to the rural residents of South Africa who would otherwise not have access to the justice system.

The training program also provided AFELL members with a chance to see how a similar paralegal system could be set up in Liberia. Additionally, the tour acquainted the delegation with best practices for paralegal training.
