    A Letter from the Chairperson

    I sincerely appreciate the devotion of LAF directors, supervisors, CEOs, deputy CEOs, branch office directors, executive secretaries, legal aid attorneys, members of the evaluation committee, members of special committees, staff and volunteers over the years. Given their effort, the LAF, which is funded by the government, has provided services in accordance with the Legal Aid Act for eighteen years, and the legal services have been improving in terms of both quality and quantity.

    I have served for bench trials in criminal, financial, family, civil and constitutional courts. In my career as a trial judge, it has been my belief that trial, prosecution and debate form the “trinity” – they work together rather than against each other. When I come across a powerful statement which clarify case facts, legal implications and applicable laws, I am truly impressed by the lawyer’s dedication and competence. This is so delightful, because the “trinity” of trial, prosecution and debate is the last ditch securing the social order.

    The growing number of cases year by year indicates that legal aid is in high demand. We are a positive vibes community encompassing thousands of staff and volunteers. Building on the existing foundation, let’s strive to offer warm-hearted, efficient and professional legal services, and to provide an institutional approach which safeguards the right to litigation of those who have no resources but are in need to litigate and ensures their equal access to justice.

    Keep going … We can do it!
