The second annual Law for Change Student Competition, sponsored by the WYNG Foundation, is currently in process in Hong Kong, inspiring another class of future public interest lawyers to use law to build strong, sustainable, and resilient families within their communities.
The 10 finalist teams have been paired with legal mentors to develop their project ideas. In October and November, with support from Linklaters and the NGO practitioners, PILnet organized workshops for all finalists on project design, planning, budgeting, and monitoring and evaluation.
The winner and the two runner-up teams will be awarded a seed grant of HK$50,000 and HK$25,000, respectively, to implement their projects within the year. The pitching event and winner selection will take place in January 2019.
