Community Paralegals/Grassroots Legal Advocates are also called by names other than paralegal. Some communities refer to them as community advisors, community facilitators, community mobilizers, and so on. However, the work they do is similar across the world – that of helping their communities access essential services through the use of laws and tools available to them.
At Namati, Community Paralegals are at the heart of all the programs as well as the global network. As an organization, Namati is working on consolidating and expanding the field of paralegal practice by providing resources that would guide practitioners who have the desire to develop a community paralegal program wherever they are.
In this webinar, @michaelotto has invited practitioners to discuss a new online resources guide by looking at the guide itself; take participants on an explanation tour of the resource guide – particularly looking at the structure and content, with a view of receiving constructive feedback from participants.
