It was a great platform for fostering collaboration between the participants to conceptualize, launch and strengthen pro bono initiative locally and regionally. In addition, we also had the privilege to participate in the legal ethics & pro bono workshop organized by Herbert Smith Freehills law firm where we learnt the significant role of corporate lawyers as well as law firms contribute in the pro bono work and strictly uphold legal ethics and professional responsibility. Lastly, we had great opportunity to visit legal clinic at University of Hong Kong where we observed the street law workshop run by clinical students and attended a seminar on migrant workers in Hong Kong. With the knowledge, experiences, and network that our researcher build by participating in those activities will be our great sources to contribute to our CSHL’s Clinical Legal Education Program and pass on to our students.

Tremendous thanks to Raoul Wallenberg Institute (RWI) in Cambodia for the strong support and excellent coordination to bring us together and inspire us to make impact.
