How we do it
We use three main strategies for increasing access to justice in Micronesia:
- We collaborate with others because we can do more when we work together;
- We go out to the community and provide legal education and outreach, so that people know more about how to get justice;
- We provide legal assistance to persons and groups, from advice and simple documents to representation in court.
Our services are always free. MLSC is a nonprofit organization and our staff is paid a salary. Money to pay our staff comes from government appropriations, grants, and donations.
