Perspectives on Forced Marriages
Ethnic minority women in Hong Kong face many socio-economic challenges such as in education and employment. When it comes to looking for a legal solution for their problems, the language barrier and the environment on access to justice in Hong Kong cause challenges. This workshop will cover the patterns and legal perspectives of forced marriages pertinent to the ethnic minority women in Hong Kong, and provide practical tips and ethical considerations for providing legal assistance in such cases.
The pro bono training workshop series seeks to address this gap, with the following aims:
- Enhance the knowledge of pro bono lawyers on issues related to ethnic minority women in Hong Kong
- Facilitate pro bono lawyers to assist more ethnic minority clients
- Provide networking opportunities for pro bono lawyers working with ethnic minority clients
Who Should Attend?
