Ms Kalinda said: “I would like to thank East Dorset District Council for the donation of these legal books to Zambia. They will go a long way to improve the standard and quality of law students and graduates, and ultimately will contribute provision of effective legal services and access to justice. Thank you again for your generosity.”
