The Migrant Workers’ Center established the “Migrant Worker Weekend Legal Education School” on 26 April 2006. The lawyers visit construction sites on weekends and educate migrant workers on their rights. These visits provide migrant workers with important legal knowledge enabling them to protect their own interests. Using specific cases as examples, the lawyers also teach them how to collect evidence, how to protect their rights and interests through legal means, thereby enhancing their awareness of rights protection.

In order to further safeguard migrant workers’ rights, the Migrant Workers’ Center pays particular emphasis on training full-time lawyers for migrant workers, university students and volunteers interested in migrant workers’ rights protection, so that they too can provide legal aid to migrant workers. Our lawyers give lectures at universities and participate in university education seminars. To date, hundreds of workshops have been organized by legal aid lawyers.
