Visit to Correctional Facility for Phase 9 “Legal Pioneer” Mentorship Programme

A total of 31 students from Tuen Mun Catholic Secondary School, Queen Elizabeth School Old Students’ Association Secondary School, Christian Alliance Cheng Wing Gee College and Holy Trinity College attended a visit to Cape Collinson Correctional Institution together with Law Society members and mentors for the “Legal Pioneer” Mentorship Programme on 6 April.

“Legal Pioneer” Mentorship Programme is a flagship programme of the Law Society that has now entered its 9th phase, whereby mentees participate in visits and engage in group projects covering a selected legal theme, aiming at enriching their legal knowledge and providing a platform for social and personal growth through a supportive relationship with their mentors.

During the visit, students had the opportunities to see the facility of the Correctional Institution, including inmates’ dormitories, dining halls and workplaces, and also met with an inmate who has shared his own experience. Participants expressed that they were deeply touched by this personal sharing session.
