Short Description

Women’s Advocacy Center was established in November 1997, as a project of the Lawyer Women’s Association and has been operating regularly ever since. On 6 December 2001, by means of Decision No.8 of Tirana District Court, it was registered as an independent legal entity. On December 14, 2004, with the court decision No.8/1 Women’s Advocacy Center changed the name in Center for Legal Civic Initiatives, which means that the Center will go on to provide psycho-social support and free legal aid for victims of domestic violence but it will have a very strong focus also in undertaking legal initiatives or being part of legal initiatives undertaken by other organizations, with the aim of increasing the access of poor and/or abused women and girls in the justice system. Legal education for women and girls especially for poor women and girls in rural areas, reports, analyses, trainings for professionals of justice system, are part of our activity too.
