EBL is supporting a network of 32 lawyers providing free legal assistance to vulnerable people. Aside from the benefit to the clients, EBL is using these consultations to highlight the most common problems for policymakers.
So far, the most extensive data comes from Kazakhstan, where the NGO Sana Sezim has 12 lawyers spread across the south of the country. In the last two months of 2011, the lawyers gave 1,478 consultations. About a third concerned family matters, and a sixth concerned registration problems.
