The National Legal Aid Clinic for Women (NLACW) was established in 1990 to provide affordable legal aid to women, youth and children from marginalised social sectors who have been victims of social injustice. Often these people cannot afford the cost of hiring a lawyer to represent them in their pursuit of justice. The clinic offers legal redress, arbitration, mediation and advocacy through law reform. NLACW’s activities are financed by donations from their mother body, the Law Association of Zambia, from client contributions and from co-operating partners.
