Street Law/ Politics

Background

“Street law” is an interactive teaching method aiming to educate laypersons about basic knowledge in law, advocacy and fundamental principles such as freedom and rights.

In light of the political context in Myanmar, we believe it is particularly important to strengthen the ability of Burmese youths in independent and critical thinking, by providing them with opportunities to engage in intellectual discussions, debates and interactive activities such as role-plays, client interviews and even mock trials!

Topics discussed in street law workshops are not confined to legal questions. Students in some of our partner schools are also enormously interested in learning about different political concepts and political systems in other parts of the world.

Volunteers are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the social and political context in Myanmar while preparing for the lessons/ workshops. More information and advice will be provided in the compulsory training session in March 2017.
