AVER LEX and SOS Children’s Villages Ukraine started a joint educational project
On January 21, 2021 AVER LEX Attorneys at Law and the International charitable organization ‘Charitable Foundation ‘SOS Children’s Villages’ Ukraine started a joint educational project.
We developed this project to introduce children and young people to the jurisprudence and raise their legal knowledge. Training takes place in the format of discussing situations where the heroes of films and cartoons find themselves. After watching a video, lawyers explained how to assess some of the actions following civil and criminal law. Also, they talked about how to act under the law in such situations.
Sergiy Lukashov, the national director of ‘SOS Children’s Villages’ Ukraine:
“Our organization is interested in additional opportunities of development for young people from vulnerable groups with whom we work. Increasing the legal knowledge of them is one of our priorities because this is the key to protect their rights and interests. We are grateful to the law firm AVER LEX for introducing young people to the world of jurisprudence”.
Volodymyr Yenich, partner:
“We got the offer in the process of cooperation with the international charitable ‘SOS Children’s Villages’ Ukraine and really liked it. This form of education is more interesting than the usual one. It clearly demonstrates to young people the importance of assessing situations legally. During project meetings, we plan to provide them with the opportunity to reflect on the explained situations and receive legal solutions to personal questions”.
During the first meeting, legal assistants Oleksiy Bokhan and Denis Shevchenko discussed with the participants the civil law and the consequences of formalizing verbal and signed contracts. They also have a criminal-legal assessment of the actions of the cartoon characters ‘Shrek’. We expect to get an enjoyable experience for team and project participants.
