The Law School of Tanzania Legal Aid Centre (LST-LAC) is mandated to design and deliver various legal aid services. These services are provided by its Candidate-Attorneys (who are lawyers) and staff to legally assist the indigents who cannot afford advocates fees.
The services offered by the LST-LAC are:
- Legal Education
This includes tailor made coaching, publication of legal education materials, media programmes, researches and publication of reports, public outreaches and mobile legal education programmes, producing self-help kits for indigents on key legal aid issues and organizing moot courts competitions for the School Candidate Attorneys.
- Legal Assistance
This includes interviewing clients, counselling, preparation of legal documents, case follow up and legal aid provision.
- Alternative Dispute Resolution
That is through mediation and reconciliation.
- Legal Representation
The center does not represent legal aid clients directly but rather refer clients to other Legal Aid Providers so as they can be represented.
