This year a team of lawyers from Gibson Dunn conducted LWOB’s UNCSW workshop. The lawyers, who represented the firm’s offices in New York and California,  have worked for the last two years with LWOB exploring and creating innovative and interactive ways to advance rule of law. The standing room only event took place at the United Nations on 18 March 2015.

It represented the second consecutive collaboration between LWOB and Gibson Dunn at the UN. In Spring 2014, LWOB  hosted a UN approved workshop that launched LWOB’s newest educational activity, an educational human trafficking board “game” entitled: FIND ME! at the 58th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW 57) in March 2014. Since that time, LWOB has professionally produced the educational activity and a recent grant will fund its mass production and distribution in 2015.

Parties interested in purchasing one or more sets of the Human Trafficking educational board game are encouraged to email with “TIP Board Game” in the subject line.

This year’s program will again featured a team of pro bono lawyers   focused on the work of lawyers serving pro bono in rule of law programs that advance the Beijing Agenda, as well as what initiatives will take that agenda forward for the next twenty years.

Look for LWOB on the UN Calendar of Events for CSW in 2016 and UNDPI.
