Online speakertour with lawyer Czarina
Lawyers for Lawyers is starting an online Speaker Tour with Czarina, a human rights lawyer from the Philippines.
As part of the Speaker Tour, Czarina will talk to lawyers from the law firm, lawyers who are connected to the Young Bar Associations of Amsterdam, Gelderland, Noord-Nederland and Friesland, and students from the University of Amsterdam.
During the online presentations, Czarina will reflect on the alarming situation of lawyers in the Philippines.
