JurFem Summer School for Female Law Students is the initiative of the Ukrainian Women Lawyers Association “JurFem”, implemented for the first time in Ukraine. It was held in Kyiv on 6-9 August, with the support of the Quality and Accessible Legal Aid in Ukraine Project, implemented by the Canadian Bureau for International Education in partnership with the Coordination Centre for Legal Aid Provision and funded by the Government of Canada.
On 1-2 August 2018, with the support of the Project, experts from 23 centers for the provision of legal aid in Ukraine and the Coordination Center discussed the prospects for the development and efficient functioning of WikiLegalAid information platform for legal advice. The most active developers of WikiLegalAid participated in the event. The event was aimed at forming an effective team of authors, called “Wikings”, who will continue working on the development and promotion of WikiLegalAid.
“Free legal aid is always nearby”: an information campaign on the right to free legal aid was presented
7 information posters and 6 social videos, where clients of the system of the provision of free legal aid (LA systems) from different parts of Ukraine featured. These information products were presented today during a briefing at the Ukrainian Crisis Media Center within the framework of the “Free Legal Aid is Always Nearby” information campaign. They tell stories of people whose rights were protected and interests defended due to the LA system. The posters and videos were developed with the support of the Ukrainian-Canadian Quality and Accessible Legal Aid in Ukraine Project.
