One of the challenges facing the children of migrants is access to legal justice. Many undocumented and uneducated parents and their children have no access to the legal system. This is where BABSEACLE comes in. Chiang Mai International Rotary Club (CMIRC) is fortunate to have both co-founders of BABSEACLE as our good active members.
BABSEACLE will conduct its 2nd annual Access to Justice week at the Amora Hotel in Chiang Mai 6 - 9 December 2018. There will be skills workshops and mock trials all designed to provide a practical learning experience in which students simulate a local court trial of a minor civil dispute or criminal offence. Details are available here. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Both 6 & 7 December CMIRC will have a table at the Justice, Health and Fitness Fair which will be held simultaneously at the Amora Hotel in Chiang Mai. We look forward to meeting many who are who are keenly interested in justice.
On the evening of 7 December there will be a collaborative dinner and film event. All proceeds will go to support the Mae Tao Clinic’s Child Protection Department. The event will feature a buffet dinner and a screening of “The Isthmus Film”.
On 9 December BABSEACLE will sponsor the 10th Asia Justice Marathon and the Global Pro Bono Run Walk to help raise awareness and promote the positive work done by lawyers in helping to the disadvantaged find legal justice.
