The National Legal Aid Clinic for Women (NLACW) has bemoaned the declining number of Lawyers being admitted to the bar in the country.

Executive Director Mandy Manda says it is unfortunate that the number of Lawyers being admitted to the bar has continued to decline against Zambia’s increasing population.

Ms. Manda says the situation has resulted in a lot of women failing to receive necessary legal services pertaining to their human rights.
