Young Workers' League

Legal Advocates for Workers' Services (LAWS)

Submitted by the Young Workers’ League and Workers for People’s Liberation, the action intends to form and train legal advocates and volunteers who are willing to render legal assistance to workers, especially those who are working in the economic zones of the National Capital Region, CALABARZON and Region III (Central Luzon). The pool of advocates and volunteers is expected to come from different state universities and colleges located in Metro Manila, particularly pre-law or law students.
