As part of DVC’s CSR drive for 2022, DVC is pleased to share that Kevin Lau is spearheading the Young Barristers Committee’s Street Law outreach programme in partnership with local NGOs and the University of Hong Kong. The Young Barristers Committee comes under the auspices of the HK Bar Association.
The Street Law Programme is a globally tried-and-tested form of public legal education, which seeks to engage and empower communities by introducing legal concepts through interactive activities and games, thus improving legal accessibility and awareness.
The Street Law Programme for 2022 is focused on the theme of discrimination. Young barristers will partner with local university students to design, review and run legal workshops on various aspects of law (with a focus on discrimination issues), which will be delivered to NGOs serving disadvantaged and minority communities, and secondary schools.
