    In lieu of a myriad of human rights abuses in the Philippines, the Drexel Kline NLG will be hosting a panel discussion, with the goal of educating law students and professors about the situation in the Philippines. We will also discuss why we need to pass the Philippine Human Rights Act and immediately suspend US financial assistance to the Armed Forces of the Philippines and Philippine National Police. This event will begin with a brief situationer on human rights abuses in the Philippines and the role of the Philippine National Police and Armed Forces of the Philippines in propagating such abuses. This will be followed by a panel discussion comprised of various attorneys involved in the Philippine human rights movement. Topics to be discussed will include: what is the Philippine Rights Act, who is championing the bill, what lawyering in the face of political repression in the Philippines looks like, why as law students we should be concerned with such abuses, and how to support.

Below is additional information about the panel from the PDAA.

    Modern Day Prosecution: Serving the Public’s Interests – The rewards you can expect as a new prosecutor

    The work of the prosecutor resides squarely within the ambit of “public interest” law. Among the many opportunities for students who wish to enter public service, being a prosecutor is indeed among the most fulfilling public interest careers one can have. The Office of the District Attorney in each of the Commonwealth’s 67 counties seeks to serve their citizens by solving community problems in a substantive way where possible, rather than by merely accepting the success of statistical convictions. The PDAA recognizes that criminal justice is never a finished construct. Prosecutors are committed to identifying best practices and policies in order to meet the ever-changing demands of our criminal justice system. These demands require the prosecutor’s constant vigilance over the legitimate needs of law enforcement, victims, as well as the rights of the accused. As Ministers of Justice, prosecutors maintain this commitment with the highest level of integrity while performing their duties as responsible public servants for the communities they serve.

    PANEL TOPICS

    • Integrity of the Prosecutor
    • Prosecutors bring change to their communities
    • Student Loan Forgiveness- Careers in Public Service
    • Intern Programs and Certification Process
    • Functions and Duties of the Prosecutor
    • Quality of Life
