The National Legal Aid Clinic for Women has recently published a series of informative and helpful booklets about various issues affecting women and children in Zambia, with support from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.

A woman can own property, in marriage, as part of her inheritance, at the end of a marriage and as a single woman. She can also own both statutory and customary land and intellectual property.

Advocacy
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.
