Farmers train on basic paralegal skills

piaILOILO CITY, Oct. 29 (PIA6) - - A total of twenty-five farmers from the different municipalities in the 3rd, 4th and 5th districts of the province of Iloilo participated in the recent  Training on Agrarian Reform Laws and Basic Paralegal Skills conducted by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) through its Farmer Paralegals Formation Program.


The Farmer Paralegals Program aims to enhance  the capacity of community-based farmer paralegals, members of the Barangay Agrarian Reform Council and other Agrarian Reform Advocates towards an effective partnership in Agrarian Reform Implementation and to fast-track Land Acquisition and Distribution (LAD) under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program Extension with Reforms (CARPER). 

Participants were trained on the basic knowledge and skills on agrarian reform laws and paralegal skills which they will need in their work as farmers paralegals in their respective communities. They were also encouraged to recruit more fellow farmers to join in the formation program.


Resource Persons for the training were Ludy Cruz of DAR Central Office, Harriet A. Loot, Mylene S. Alviar, Johnny C. Vicentino, Antonio Z. Mocero, Jr., Susan G. Agustin, Ma. Yvonne E. Senobin, and Ernie T. Tumlos. 

The trainors compose the Farmer Paralegals Provincial Project Management Team Members of DAR and some are graduates of the University of the Philippines (UP) Law Center First Combined Foundation and Advanced Certificate Course of the Paralegal Training Program on the Philippine Legal System and the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program Laws, Rules and Procedures (PTP - CARP).

The farmer paralegals are expected to help and work with DAR on the landholdings targeted for engagement, most of which are landholdings under the post LAD process which have been pending for completion due to various problems, issues and concerns confronting CARP Implementation back in their communities.
