Center for Legal Aid and
Center for Legal Aid and Mediation (former Legal Aid Clinic LAC) is the first of its kind in Rwanda,
where free legal assistance is provided by Law students.
The Center’s primary function is threefold :
The first being a training facility for law students where they are provided with 'practical legal training’ and necessary exposure
to the realities of legal practice through participation in a legal aid clinic.
The second which is equally important, is the provision of quality legal aid services to the vulnerable people,
by offering training, advisory and advocacy on legal related issues.
The third is conducting adequate research on key
legal issues identified from the cases brought by the people seeking for legal aid.
