Paralegal girls further empowered

Dear colleagues,

SASANE from June 14, to June 29, 2011 organized the advanced paralegal training for 20 paralegals. Advocate Bagala Regmi is the responsible person for providing the training to the paralegals.

 The advanced paralegal training is provided basically for making the trainees sustain economically. This training basically holds the subject matter of women empowerment, public speaking, Nepalese legal System, Nepalese Court Procedure, National Women Commission Jurisdiction, National Human Right Committee Activities, Women Rights, Gender Rights, Equality and Equity, Paralegal Code of Conduct, District and Appellate Court Jurisdiction and Court Act and Regulation and the Women Based crime related Law. This training is given to the ones receiving the certificate which takes place for 15 days. Through this training the trainees are qualified to give support to the victims in the court itself.

The paralegals’ just receiving the paralegal certificate was not just enough. Just working in the police stations was not enough to support the victims, as the victims were found unaware about the legal procedures in the court, so for the process of assisting the victims in the court as the victims were found uncomfortable and nervous regarding the court issues. If such situation arises the case of the victim in court gets a little weak and difficult to handle as well. To encourage and support the victim, the paralegals, after going to the court, are equipped with the information and general idea about the civil law as well as practice the learned materials in the court as well.

The paralegals contact the court personnel, the Judge and the private as well as the government lawyers, and can share their difficulties and solve their queries by which they can get practically involved in the court procedure the maximum number of victims can get the required legal aid and service.

The paralegals earn a little sum of money by working in the police station and now through the court the paralegals can get another sum of money by which they can get adequate sum of money for their livelihood and can also work as a junior lawyer in the court.

 We received a very less support than expected; even then we carried out the mentioned work even though various difficulties came across and also carried out advancing the paralegals. We can even work better and achieve more than this even if you provide us your little support. So, support whole heartedly so that from your little support the paralegals can make their life worthwhile. Expecting that you would provide us with the required support.

Thank you!
