Appreciation for the opening of the Legal Advocacy Centre

By Dr Than Lwin Tun


The establishment of a Legal Advocacy Centre in Nay Pyi Taw marks a significant milestone in the country’s journey toward justice and legal empowerment.


The motto for the Ministry of Legal Affairs (MOLA) is “the legal profession is a noble pro­fession”, and the mission is to protect legal rights, to be better functions of MOLA, to partici­pate in the judicial system for promoting public trust and to participate in the justice sector reform.


The State Administration Council (SAC) Chairman and Prime Minister attended and unveiled the signage of the Le­gal Advocacy Centre of the Min­istry of Legal Affairs in Nay Pyi Taw on 29 April 2024.


The SAC Chairman stressed the need to accumulate legal knowledge for initiating the peace and stability of the na­tion, the rule of law and the socioeconomic development of the people, adding adminis­trative authorities need to be skilful in legal affairs for their management measures and fol­low the laws. As such, the SAC Chairman said that all arts and science universities teach law subjects to confer BA (Law) degrees on graduates, and oth­er significant universities give training to the students to get LLB degrees. Hence, he urged all legal experts in Myanmar to try hard to become international legal experts.


The opening of this centre provides a vital resource for in­dividuals who may face legal challenges, ensuring they have access to legal representation, advocacy, and support. By offer­ing guidance and assistance, the centre can empower individuals to navigate the complexities of the legal system and assert their rights with confidence.


By providing legal assis­tance, advocacy, and education, this centre can empower all communities, promote human rights, and contribute to the overall development of a fair and just society. It’s hearten­ing to see efforts being made to strengthen the rule of law and support fundamental rights in Myanmar.


This Legal Advocacy Centre initiatives to play a crucial role in ensuring that all individuals and communities have the nec­essary provisions and symbols to navigate the legal system.


This creditable effort re­flects a dedication to develop­ing a fair and just society where the rights and dignity of every individual are respected and protected.


This endeavour deserves sincere appreciation for its en­thusiasm


for promoting justice, equality, and the rule of law. It is an inspiration of hope for those in need of legal assistance and contributes to positive change in Myanmar.


In addition, I appreciate all those involved in the estab­lishment of the Legal Advocacy Centre in Nay Pyi Taw, Myan­mar.
