Delegates crossing international borders to get together to understand pressing issues in the legal sector…including pro bono, detaining without trial, etc.
Different nationalities wasn’t a hinder to the discussions during the ALSA conference. Those who had queries could easily ask questions without being afraid of unfamiliar faces…
Joseph, our founding NUSPBG President, sharing his experiences from setting up the Pro Bono Group from scratch.
The ALSA students in the Pro Bono action-discussion group listening to Joseph’s experiences. Perhaps we see the future president of the Jakarta/Bangkok/Japan/Beijing Pro Bono Group in this photo!
From Japan to China, Indonesia to Bangkok, we shared with one another the state of various social problems in our countries.
Even when English was not everyone’s mother tongue, the ALSA students helped each other express themselves in the discussion, building friendships along the way.
Troubleshooting the problems was harder than we expected…
…but here we are with the fruits of our discussion!
