Review for INTERNATIONAL BRIDGES TO JUSTICE, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I worked with IBJ's Cambodia branch ansd was based in the Pursat office. Cambodia has a very high rate of illegal pre-trial detention and a serious shortage of criminal defense lawyers. For these reasons IBJ's work is instrumental. The Pursat Office carried a very heavy case load and at the time only had one lawyer on hand. In addition to the case load, transportation and communication obstacles also slowed the office's ability to serve the community. Despite these set-backs, the staff was incredibly dedicated and had a large impact on the community.

Role:  Volunteer & I worked with the office on case managment and public awareness campaigns.
