How we do it


We use three main strategies for increasing access to justice in Micronesia:  

  1. We collaborate with others because we can do more when we work together;
  2. We go out to the community and provide legal education and  outreach, so that people know more about how to get justice;
  3. 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.
