Watch Paul McNally’s video on community paralegals, made after the Wits Justice Project’s recent breakfast discussion on community paralegals in South Africa.

McNally interviews Bricks Mokolo of the Orange Farm Human Rights Advice Centre about the centre’s work, funding challenges and a recycling initiative to raise money for the centre.

WJP coordinator Nooshin Erfani-Ghadimi also features in the video, arguing that community paralegals can relieve some of the pressure on SA’s criminal justice system and make it more effective.

Watch the video.
