Community-Based Paralegal Formation Process and Training Toolkit – Protecting the Watershed Forest Reserves through Legal Empowerment

This training tool kit is produced based on BALAOD Mindanaw’s years of experience in doing community paralegal formation and legal empowerment. The process and content described herein are drawn from the actual works of the organization, which is committed to advancing the legal and justice issues of the marginalized sectors and communities in Mindanao through alternative lawyering, paralegalism, and active nonviolence.

This training toolkit is developed for the community and people’s organizations (POs) that wish to replicate the process of paralegal formation and community legal empowerment. This can also be used as reference for government agencies and civil society organizations (CSOs).
