On a local scale, we have created a legal blog as one of our manifestation of pro bono service, that is Legal Aid Institute of Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam (Lembaga Bantuan Hukum Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam), that you may visit at www.lembagabantuanhukum.org This website is in Indonesia language. In this blog, we provide free and useful legal information and we share our legal knowledge to the community so that the people can be informed on their rights and obligations in accordance with the prevailing laws and regulations in Indonesia. In LBH AMDG, we also provide free consultation that people can send to us through email. At this moment, we do not provide any representation and/or litigation service to the community through our blog. However, we do provide pro bono services to the select religion and national institute that require our legal assistant to solve and to manage their legal situation.
Leks&Co came into joint cooperation with Hukumonline.com to provide probono services to readers of Hukumonline.com.
