The Ateneo Legal Services Center (ALSC) conducted its first legal aid mission for school year 2016-2017 last October 23, 2016. The half-day activity was held at the Comembo Elementary School, with over 80 residents of Barangay Comembo, Makati in attendance.
ALSC Director Axel Rupert Cruz opened the mission by thanking the barangay officials for allowing the ALSC, volunteer lawyers and law students to impart their legal knowledge and provide legal services to the community.
The teaching modules developed by the students involved group dynamics and synthesis activities, making the sessions interactive and engaging and helping the residents remember the key points from the lectures.
After lunch, the residents were given the opportunity to discuss their legal issues and queries in private consultations with volunteer lawyers assisted by the students.
