Legal Sources of Law in Tanzania

The centre organizes a legal aid clinic for women and children every Thursday from 13:00 to 18:00. In addition, there are two full-time legal advisors who deal with clients outside of the clinic. The centre offers reconciliation services on Wednesdays starting at 3:00 pm. In addition to the primary sources I have highlighted above, the holdings of the Tanzania Law Library also contain a considerable number of secondary sources. Recent examples include: Tanzania. 2021. Website. The Legal and Human Rights Centre (LHRC) is registered in Tanzania as a private, non-governmental, non-partisan and non-profit organization. It has been an autonomous and independent entity since its registration in September 1995.

The Centre for Legal and Human Rights was founded because it was aware of the extent to which the majority of people were unaware of their rights and for those who were in need and did not have the means to assert their rights in court because they did not have legal representation. WLAC is headquartered in Dar es Salaam, but its commitment is aimed at women in both urban and rural areas. The Centre has established sixteen (16) paralegal units for grassroots outreach. Paralegals counsel women and children in need. They also accompany them to court to obtain moral support. Other issues are resolved amicably through reconciliation sessions.

Visit for the Presidential Library Before a candidate is required to apply for registration as an attorney, he or she must complete an LL.B internship for a period of at least six months and an additional six months of students at a recognized law firm or other practicing legal entity. The application for registration is made through a petition addressed to the Chief Justice and a successful candidate must write a bar examination three times a year. The Constitution provides for a bill of rights, although it also provides for a number of recovery clauses.

In other words, the enjoyment of certain rights and freedoms under the Constitution is not absolute, but regulated by law. Land Rights Research and Resource Institute (HakiArdhi) The Women`s Legal Aid Centre has served hundreds of clients with legal problems and human rights violations. For example, in 1998, it served 3412 clients. In 2000, it served 3266 clients. In 2001, he served 4180 clients. The most common issues dealt with range from marriage, violence, custody and alimony, inheritance and inheritance issues, civil matters, land issues and labour issues. Natural resources: Tanzania is one of the countries in terms of natural resources. As such, Tanzania has minerals such as gold, diamonds, tanzanite and various other gemstones, natural gas, iron ore, coal, spring water, phosphates, soda and salt. There are large lakes that stimulate the fishing industry in the country. These lakes include: Victoria, Tanganyika and Nyasa. Apart from the lakes, all of Tanzania is covered in the eastern part by the Indian Ocean. There are large freshwater rivers and wetlands such as Ruvu, Pangani, Kilombero and Ruaha.

These rivers have potential for fish production. Similarly, these rivers produce natural freshwater, where the total estimate is 730,000 tonnes per year, although the current catch is 350,000 tonnes. A large proportion of the population cannot afford legal services, and women are particularly disadvantaged than men by their higher poverty rates. In response, the Centre`s volunteers provide free legal advice, counselling, reconciliation, legal organization and legal representation to women and children in need. National Strategy for Growth and Poverty Reduction The Centre for Law and Human Rights is both a legal and a human rights organization. The Centre was established to contribute to the democratization process in Tanzania and works to promote, strengthen and protect human rights.
