Mobile Visits in Highland Villages of Adjara

On September 19-20, 2022, more than 250 Adjarians from the highlands learned about women's rights, human trafficking, and the free services available from the Legal Aid Service (LAS). 

The mobile visits in Khulo, Keda, Shuakhevi and Khelvachauri municipalities were led by the LAS and included presentations by student-paralegals. The mobile visits took place with support from the USAID Rule of Law Program. 

The village dwellers also had the opportunity to meet with lawyers from the LAS Batumi Bureau and consult on legal issues. Consultations were provided to 38 people, the majority of whom asked for assistance regarding land registration, inheritance, domestic violence, dept-related legal issues.

The informational meetings were led by LAS Deputy Director David Simonia and seven student-paralegals who recently completed trainings in human trafficking, women’s rights and child’s rights.

With the support of the USAID Rule of Law Program, the LAS has been implementing the project Make Justice Accessible to All - Paralegal Initiative since July 2022. The project involves the training of non-lawyers in selected legal issues so they can provide primary legal assistance to members of the public who do not otherwise have ready access to legal services.
