The third annual Law for Change Student Competition, sponsored by the WYNG Foundation, is currently in progress, inspiring another class of future public interest lawyers to use law to build sustainable communities in Hong Kong.
In October 2019, seven competition finalists were selected and matched with their legal mentors to develop full proposals around the chosen theme of this year’s competition, “Community” with a focus on “Sustainability.” The finalist teams met with their legal mentors for the first time on October 10 at the welcome reception hosted by Stephenson Harwood. The previous winning team and runner-up teams also joined to share their project implementation updates.
PILnet organized a workshop on October 19 to provide finalist teams with training on project design, planning, budgeting, and monitoring and evaluation. The finalist teams will continue working on their proposal until the end of December 2019.
PILnet extends its deepest appreciation to the WYNG Foundation, as it has made the Law for Change Student Competition possible through its generous support.
