To kick-off the national process in Bangladesh, SAILS initiated a dialogue with the leading legal aid and empowerment organizations. The objective of this dialogue was to introduce and promote paralegalism to advance legal empowerment of the poor and increase excess to justice. A two-day mapping workshop was organized with the participation of different legal empowerment organizations in Bangladesh. Among the participants, there were lawyers from Nepal and Sri Lanka, who subsequently anchored activities in those two countries.
