Providing Legal Empowerment

January 27, 2016

The Somaliland Paralegal Project equips Somalilanders who cannot afford a lawyer with basic knowledge of criminal law and procedure so they can better navigate the criminal justice system. Our paralegals refer serious cases to legal aid lawyers, prioritising juvenile and SGBV cases.

 

  • Our work includes:

    • Review of prison conditions
    • Researching the status legal aid services provided to detained juveniles
    • Research and data collection on prisons throughout the region
