COMMUNITY LEGAL CLINIC
The Community Legal Clinic (“CLC”) provides free legal advice and support to those in need, regardless of their financial situation. Access to justice is a fundamental right, and it is CLC’s commitment to ensure that everyone has access to legal guidance.
CLC’s dedication to helping people in the community, regardless of their background or age, we show that justice should be available to everyone, not just those who can afford it. By collaborating with organizations like Kelab Kesejahteraan Sosial Malaysia and China-ASEAN Legal Cooperation Center (“CALCC”) and its associate law firms, we are expanding our reach and furthering our mission of making legal assistance accessible to all.
We emphasize on “justice” being unrelated to financial or power status aligns with the core principles of fairness and equality in the legal system. By providing assistance to the helpless, we are indeed making a significant difference in people’s lives and upholding the values of justice.
The legal clinic’s guidance on family issues, debt consolidation, and bankruptcy showcases its comprehensive approach in addressing legal concerns that affect people’s daily lives. By assisting those facing eviction or foreclosure, CLC has played a crucial role in helping families retain their homes and avoid potential financial crises.
Moreover, the legal clinic’s support for individuals dealing with employment-related issues, such as unfair dismissal, unpaid wages, and workplace discrimination, highlights its dedication to protecting workers’ rights and promoting fair treatment in the workplace.
The inclusion of educational programs and workshops further demonstrates CLC’s commitment to empowering the community with legal knowledge and equipping them to make informed decisions. By providing these resources, the legal clinic not only addresses immediate legal issues but also fosters long-term empowerment and self-sufficiency among community members.
The success of CLC can be attributed to the collaborative efforts of Kelab Kesejahteraan Sosial Malaysia and China-ASEAN Legal Cooperation Center (“CALCC”), its associate law firms and all enthusiastic volunteer lawyers who work together to ensure that legal assistance is accessible to those in need. By combining expertise and resources, these organizations have made a significant positive impact on the lives of countless individuals in the local community.
We are proud that CLC has made a positive impact on the lives of over 500 people we’ve assisted in the past years.
