BABSEACLE and the University Malaya Present at the 7th Annual ASLI Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Demonstrating Their Means, Methods and Strategies of CLE Development, BABSEA CLE and the University Malaya Present at the 7th Annual Asian Law Institute Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
On May 26th, 2010 in front of a room packed with legal educators from all regions of Asia, BABSEA CLE and its partner, the University Malaya (UM) presented on their means, methods and strategies in developing CLE programs throughout the region.
With students teaching in prisons, community centers, juvenile detention facilities and often providing legal teachings to their own peers on campus, CLE has flourished in 2009 throughout Malaysia. BABSEA CLE has been a supporting partner throughout, in part by hosting and providing fee waiver scholarships for four Community Outreach Programme/Clinical Legal Education University Malaya (UM) students to participate in the BABSEA CLE International Legal Studies Internship Program during July 2009. These students, alongside BABSEA CLE Malaysian NGO partner ERA Consumer, were given the task of developing a community legal education child rights manual.
