OUTLET (Outreach Legal Talks Initiative) is an innovative project that provides free talks delivered by law students directly to underprivileged communities in Hong Kong. OUTLET aims at enhancing social justice and equality through empowering the needy and preventing legal problems from arising. Under the supervision of legal professionals, law students designed their own talks and delivered the materials to groups in community centres.

OUTLET’s components are:

  1. Outreach We need to bring information from the online platforms directly to the affected community, and explain in plain language
  2. Train the Trainer Cost Efficiency Effect Lawyers have limited time for pro bono legal talks; OUTLET instead invites them to train law students who are in the course of their legal studies and are more available to deliver the talks
  3. Interactive Social workers educates students about community needs. Discussion and interaction with the audience during the outreach talks have a further empowerment effect for OUTLET participants
