Jaime Wong

Jaime is a Co-Founder of the Access to Justice Fellowship, winner of PILnet’s Law for Change Student Competition 2019. The Access to Justice Fellowship, which evolved from a student project into a registered charity, strives to make justice accessible for marginalised communities through sustainable legal partnerships. Its flagship programme, the Fair Work Clinic, was developed in collaboration with the University of Hong Kong and offers critical legal assistance to grassroots women workers while fostering dialogue around labour legislation among community stakeholders. As Co-Head of Office at Justice Without Borders (JWB) Hong Kong, Jaime leads comprehensive capacity-building programmes for migrant workers, frontline caseworkers, and pro bono lawyers, building communities of practice to support migrant domestic workers throughout their migration journey. She was previously lead caseworker on multiple cross-border cases at the Equal Opportunities Commission and the Labour Tribunal. JWB is a regional nonprofit advancing transnational access to justice for migrant domestic workers. Jaime has facilitated workshops at One Young World, the Annual Conference of the Berkeley Centre on Comparative Equality and Anti-Discrimination Law, PILnet Global Forum, and the Asia Pro Bono Conference on topics such as trauma-informed practice and the “4-18 Rule”. Prior to her current roles, Jaime served on various boards and governance committees of international and local NGOs. Jaime earned her LLB and PCLL at the University of Hong Kong.
