Our Story

The Paralegal Alliance Network (PAN) is a consortium of 20 non-governmental Legal Aid Service Providers (LASPs) in Zambia.

PAN’s mission is to leverage the collective power of its network members to improve access to justice for all indigents, detainees and in particular to ensure that the rights of persons with psychosocial and intellectual disabilities, both victims and defendants, are upheld during their interface with the criminal justice system thus challenging the acute discrimination experienced by this constituency throughout the criminal justice chain. Formed in 2000 by the Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace (CCJP), Young Women Christian Association (YWCA), Zambia Civic Education Association (ZCEA) and Legal Resources Foundation (LRF), PAN was hosted as a programme by the CCJP till 2013 when it was registered as a company by guarantee under PACRA and as an NGO under the NGOs Act.
