The 35 farmer-leaders, together with 15 municipal agrarian reform program officers (MAROs) were provided technical know-how on conducting legal interviews, case report preparation-case build up making, affidavit-writing and mediation techniques.

Regional Director Alejandro S. Otacan said, “together with our MAROs, these farmer-leaders are important partners of DAR. They are influential in their respective areas. That’s why they must be equipped with knowledge to resolve agrarian issues at their level.”

Otacan said the training would enhance the farmers’ skills as a paralegal and deepen their understanding about their roles in the community, as well as agrarian reform laws and policies.
