Gombak, 27 November 2021. Dr Shukriah Mohd Sheriff, the coordinator of Legal Advisory Services participates in a sharing session with AIKOL’s strategic partner, Pusat Wanita Berdaya (PWB) DUN Hulu Kelang. During the session, Dr Shukriah shares information on legal awareness programmes and advisory services conducted by AIKOL under the IIUM Legal Advisory Services for the public.
The sharing session highlights the programmes conducted by the IIUM Legal Aid Services (ILAS) that aims to raise legal awareness among the public on legal matters. The coordinator elaborates on the legal aid services carried out by the ILAS. The ILAS only provides preliminary or initial advice to assist clients to take their legal concerns forward. The ILAS is unable to represent the clients’ cases in court. Dr Shukriah further explains the process flow that clients would have to go through as well as the explanation on the experienced lecturers and the involvement of AIKOL’s students during the legal consultation process.
The sharing session is beneficial and allows the exchange of information, thus, provides awareness to the public regarding the services that the ILAS provides. More programmes will be conducted in the near future, to spread legal literacy among the Hulu Kelang community and the public at large.
