Philippines Supreme Court Forum on Access to Justice 6/30- 7/2

I attended the Supreme Court of Philippines's forum Access to Justice from June 30 to July 1. Called "Forum on Increasing Access to Justice: Bridging Gaps and Removing Roadblocks", the Court received input from different stakeholders of the justice system, particularly the sectors that are most vulnerable, regarding their issues and concerns on access to justice, particularly through the judicial system, and recommendations on how the Court may address the same.

The Forum was held simultaneously through video conferencing in Manila, Cebu, and Cagayan de Oro. Materials from the conference can be accessed here: I hope to have more personal analysis of the issues on hand soon!
