Training of Trainers for the Capacity Building of Paralegals in Nepal – Participant Booklet

This resource is a participant booklet from a paralegal training of trainers (ToT) program conducted from 18-24 March 2017 in Pokhara, Nepal.

“The ToT, a collaborative effort of actors in Nepal engaged in legal empowerment work, is organized by Alliance for Social Dialogue (ASD), BRAC University, Lawyers’ National Campaign for Elimination of Caste Discrimination (LANCAU Nepal), Open Society Justice Initiative (OSJI) and with the trainers coming from the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) in India.

This training is part of a series of trainings on community paralegal work across the South Asia region. The approach of this training program will be to enhance the capacities of people training and working with paralegals in better understanding the role of paralegals holistically, challenges in building the identity of paralegals and building their skills, and under- standing of design and behavior aspects of training the paralegals.

The driving idea behind the training is that the efforts to improve justice at the local level are collectively lagging and may be greatly enhanced through mutual learning, both by the many diverse NGOs that are dedicated to this work and policy makers who contribute to their effectiveness. The training in Nepal will serve as a first step towards building and strengthening a cohesive, unified movement for legal empowerment in Nepal.”
