Visits to Correctional Facilities for Phase 8 “Legal Pioneer” Mentorship Programme

“Legal Pioneer” Mentorship Programme Working Group (“Working Group”) under the Community Relations Committee (“CRC”) organised two half-day visits to Lai King and Cape Collinson Correctional Institutions for students who participated in the Phase 8 of the Legal Pioneer Mentorship Programme on 28 and 31 March, respectively. A total of 30 students from Shatin Tsung Tsin Secondary School, Yuen Long Merchants Association Secondary School and Christian Alliance Cheng Wing Gee College attended the event together with Law Society members and mentors.

During the visits, students had the opportunities to see the facilities of the two institutions, including inmates’ dormitories, dining halls and workplaces, and also meet with inmates. Participants were deeply touched by the personal sharing of inmates. Both events went smoothly and were well-received by the attendees.
