LAW SOCIETY NEWS 律 師 會 新 聞 Law Week 2017 – 'The Rule of Law ~ 110 Years since the Starting Point' The first Law Week in 1991 evinced the aspiration of the Law Society to provide fuller legal knowledge and promote legal services in the community. New features were introduced to gauge the needs of different social segments from time to time. In 2017, a Free Legal Advice Programme was organised on 22 and 23 September at the covered piazza of Times Square. Nearly 100 solicitors and trainee solicitors joined us to offer free legal advice on over 230 enquiries from members of the public during the two days. Besides, four community legal talks were held at Hong Kong Cultural Centre on 28 October and 11 November, attracting almost 250 attendances. To fulfill our mission to bring legal knowledge to the community, the Law Week Organising Committee ('OC') made use of videos and social media channels including Facebook and Youtube to promote legal knowledge to the general public. The President and Council members were invited to participate in the production of videos featuring legal topics on "Basic Law", "Family Law", "Wills and Probate", "Anti-Money Laundering", "Traffic Accident Liability", "Cyber Crime" and "Personal Injury". A children's programme took place on 9 and 16 December with the support of Young Solicitors' Group, Tung Wah Group of Hospitals and Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, aiming to nurture them to be law-abiding citizens and broaden their horizons through interactions with Law Society volunteers. Over 25 volunteers participated in this Joint opening ceremony with Teen Talk. 法律周暨「青Teen講場」開幕典禮。 法律周 2017 – 贏在起跑線、跨越110 律師會於1991年開始舉辦法律周,旨在向市民推廣法 律知識和法律服務。法律周不時加入新元素,務求滿 足社會不同階層的需求。 今年,法律周於9月22日及23日在時代廣場舉辦了為 期兩天的免費法律諮詢活動。近100位律師及見習律 師為超過230名市民提供免費法律諮詢。此外,法律 周亦於10月28日及11月11日在香港文化中心舉行了 4場法律社區講座,吸引了近250名市民出席。 為了履行推廣法律知識的使命,法律周籌委會利用 Facebook和Youtube等社交媒體向公眾宣揚法律知 識,並邀請了律師會會長和理事會成員參與製作法律 知識短片,內容涵蓋《基本法》、家事法、遺囑及遺 產、打擊洗錢、交通事故責任、網絡罪行和人身傷亡 等法律專題。 法律周於12月9日及16日舉辦了為兒童而設的活動, 並獲年青律師小組、東華三院及香港青年協會支持。 小學生籍著與律師義工互動交流,擴闊視野。此項活 動有超過25名律師義工參與。 法律周暨「青Teen講場」開幕典禮於2017年11月25 26 www.hk-lawyer.org •  February 2018
