In May 2017, Pro Bono HK launched its first community legal clinic with Society for Community Organization (“SoCO”). Three years on, on 9 July 2020, we are delighted to have expanded and launched our second community legal clinic, this time in collaboration with ImpactHK to assist their homeless/streetsleeper clients. Huge thanks to our volunteer Solicitor, Peter Chan, who attended the first SoCO clinic as well as this first ImpactHK clinic as well as to the Team at ImpactHK for making it possible.
We will also enhance legal literacy for the homeless/streetsleepers through delivery of community legal talks. This is a great opportunity to make justice accessible to more parts of the Hong Kong community.
