WLJH leverages the knowledge and skills of lawyers in Canada and other developed nations on a pro bono basis to work with law firms in Nepal to develop, deliver, monitor and assess its curriculum and related activities. Nepali women lawyers selected to participate in the program (WLJH Interns) will receive a three year placement in a registered Nepali law firm. The three year educational program commences with an intensive one month foundation course on practical legal skills and delivers monthly 1-2 day continuing legal education seminars on basic legal skills in specific practice areas. To augment the learning acquired from the in-person trainings WLJH Interns have access to an on-line pool of international legal experts and materials through the WLJH Mentor/Peer program.
