National Legal Aid Clinic for Women (NLACW) was established in 1990 to provide affordable legal aid services to women 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. NLACW offers legal services, representation, legal information and education and conducts advocacy for policy and law reform on women and children’s rights. NLACW’s activities are financed by donations from their mother body, the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ), client contributions and co-operating partners. NLACW wants to see a society where underprivileged women and children have fair and equal access to legal rights through legal representation.
