The University of Maryland School of Law recently held a law clinic in Namibia. They assisted the NPA by doing needs assessments in 8 regions of our country.
Volunteers - Professor Barbara Olshansky and law students Michelle Salomon, John Hart, and Jack Haake raced around our country collecting information from our paralegals and also from people in the communities to compile needs assessments.
This information is going to be used to draft legislation on the recognition of paralegal work in Namibia, assisting the NPA to continue to work on the communities legal needs and assisting our paralegal volunteers to continue to render effective legal assistance and information. It will also be of use to further develop our strategic, long term plans.
