OUTLAC AND ITS ESTABLISHMENT

The Open University of Tanzania Legal Aid Clinic commonly to be referred as OUTLAC is a creature of the Open University of Tanzania Charter of Incorporation having established by the Open University Council during its 56th sitting.

The OUTLAC was established with a clear mandate of putting in practice the law that we teach, offer pro bono legal services to the needy and the most disadvantaged group in the society as well as act as a community service scheme for the Open University of Tanzania which has network of regional centre all over the United Republic of Tanzania.

Why Legal Aid Clinic

The Open University of Tanzania as one of the implementing agencies of the legal sector reform programme thought timely justice for all will not be achievable in the absence of more opportunities for legal aid providers. OUTLAC aims to breathe life into United Republic of Tanzania's Constitutional guarantee of equality before the law through probono services to low income and vulnerable groups in the society who would otherwise have no access to justice.

It is upon those bases that the Faculty of Law of The Open University of Tanzania came up with this idea of establishing the legal aid clinic which in most cases will be mobile to our regional centres throughout Tanzania. OUTLAC will work very closely with the already established legal aid schemes. It will also forge link with other individuals and organizations with interest in legal aid provision.
