【Law Week 2020】
This year’s Law Week started with a successful Free Legal Advice Programme held on 31 October and 1 November at the Covered Piazza of Times Square in Causeway Bay. Over the weekend, a team of volunteer solicitors helped over 200 citizens by giving professional legal advice to address their legal issues. Not only did it provide an opportunity for young solicitors to accumulate experience, but more importantly it was a meaningful programme to serve the general public.
Following the Free Legal Advice Programme, five sessions of community talks will be held on 14, 20 and 21 November to enhance the public’s legal knowledge. In view of the development of Covid-19, this year’s talks will be held online to minimize the risk of spreading the virus. Solicitors are invited to be speakers to share their expertise covering topics including Employees’ compensation claims and Personal injuries, Family Law, Building Management, Criminal Law and Wills and Probate.
