DAR trains farmer-paralegals

dailyguardianTHE Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR)-Iloilo Provincial Office recently conducted a training on Agrarian Reform Laws and Basic Paralegal Skills under its Farmer Paralegals Formation Program.


Twenty five (25) farmer paralegals from different municipalities in the third, fourth and fifth districts of Iloilo province participated in the training and are part of the farmer paralegals formation program of DAR.

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

The resource persons were Ludy Cruz (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 speakers are part of the Farmer Paralegals Provincial Project Management Team, members of DAR while some are graduates of the University of the Philippines (UP) Law Center First Combined Foundation, 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 Program aims to enhance the capacity of community-based farmer paralegals, members of the Barangay Agrarian Reform Council and other Agrarian Reform Advocates towards 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).

Also part of its objectives is to provide legal access to farming communities and assist in the resolution of agrarian disputes.

Back in their respective communities, said farmer paralegals will 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.
