Legal Aid Handbook for Paralegals

This manual should be used as a basic reference material for paralegals and their trainers during training. Paralegals should always consult when carrying out their duties in the community, especially when they are not sure of what the law provides in a particular situation or how to go about solving a particular problem.

The manual should be used together with other materials on the law and on paralegal education. The law continuously changes so one should keep in mind that the issues covered in this manual are subject to periodical change as the laws get amended or repealed. While efforts will be made to update the handbook, users of this handbook are advised to also consult the recent legal text like laws of parliament and the Constitution so as to be up-to-date on legal information. Consulting other materials is also useful so as to complement the information in this handbook.
