Continuing the discussion from Progress updates from the learning exchange in Bangladesh with BNWLA, I wanted to start a new post to highlight @fatimaadamu’s progress towards pushing the national discussion of recognition of community paralegals in Nigeria forward.
Hello everyone, hope we are all doing great. Happy new year to us all. For us at IWEI , the year is starting on a good note for our paralegal work. We are going to be hosting a seminar on paralegal recognition and legitimization in Kano but we are bringing together a 100 practitioners from all the regions of our country. We have representatives from the National ministry of justice, the judiciary, the legislators, The Bar Association, FIDA and others. This is meant to create a buzz and start real discussions around legitimization and recognition. please follow @IWEIng on twitter to get information, add iwei on SKYPE or use #ISUPPORTPARALEGALS on the 22nd of February, 2016 to participate in discussion. 9am our time.
I also wanted to bring @Ore_Ohimor from Nigeria into the discussion as he recently expressed interest
…in public-interest law especially in terms of working with local communities to improve justice delivery in line with basic law principles, as well as developing a system for training and supporting paralegals in local communities. Would be glad to learn from your experience and share your contacts.
@mustafa_mahmoud, @abigailmoy, @KhanyisileNtsenge, @nomboniso and others can follow your progress here too. #ISUPPORTPARALEGALS Continuing the discussion from Progress updates from the learning exchange in Bangladesh with BNWLA:
