Rule of Law is an integral part of every prosperous society. Rule of law ensures social, economic
and political freedom.
Legal Literacy, sometimes called public legal education or Legal awareness, is the empowerment
of individuals regarding issues involving the law. Legal awareness helps to promote
consciousness of legal culture, participation in the formation of laws and the rule of law.
Nepal recently promulgated a new constitution the constitution of Nepal 2072 B.S. Similarly, in
2018 the parliament successfully passed the long awaited General Code 2074 B.S
(MULUKIAIN) replacing the previous code which not only regulates the Nepalese society but
also reflects the trends and practices of Nepalese society. Thus, to raise awareness among the
general public regarding the shift in Nepalese Legal dimensions JCI MANOHARA organized a
training session on Legal Literacy.
Objectives of Legal Literacy Training:
1. To raise Legal awareness among the participants.
2. To provide information on Nepalese legal and constitutional History.
3. To give an adequate knowledge on the changes in Nepalese Law.
4. To promote rule of law.
5. To train participants to recognize their legal rights and responsibilities.
6. To give an adequate knowledge on civil code, criminal code, procedures and some major
provisions of the new general code of Nepal 2074 B.S.
