Training is at the core of everything we do. Our grassroots training strategy uses innovative legal education to build the capacity of community members, activists, lawyers and law students to effectively use the law to defend and protect human rights.
Because we believe that learning takes time and sustained commitment, our training programs run for at least a year and cover areas such as human rights, civic structure and education, fact-finding, judicial and non-judicial remedies, media and monitoring and enforcement strategies. The trainings underscore the interlinked and indivisible nature of rights, with modules and toolkits that decode complex legal information into materials that are accessible. Our toolkits cover a range of materials such as fact-finding surveys, reports, petition outlines, and sample complaints applications, establishing a repository of information for future cases.
