Access to Justice 

Activities and Services

In order to enhance the availability and quality of legal services provided to local communities, the AJP coordinates and mentors a nation-wide network of community based paralegals. With paralegal desks located around the country, free legal consultation and stand-by lawyer support is more widely available to target groups. The network continues to grow as community based paralegals are educated in basic ADR skills, conflict management, legal writing and assistance, legal case analysis and judicial process.

Through its paralegals and mass media, the AJP promotes target groups' and stakeholders' awareness about local dispute resolution mechanisms and their rights to access to justice.
