The paper presents the lessons learned on the legal empowerment of women from the Transitional Programme of Post-Conflict Reconstruction (Programme transitoire de reconstruction post-conflict - PTRPC) in Burundi. The programme has supported the establishment of legal clinics that inform women of their legal rights and to enable them to enforce these rights through both local customary and legal systems. The case study highlights the importance of having mechanisms for defending rights. While the programme has some success, challenges such as overcoming community resistance. Overall, the experience of the legal clinics is an important innovation that is now being mainstreamed into government policies and programmes.
