Veritas Legal Society held an executive meeting on Oct. 30 in New York to prepare a roadmap for 2011. The executive members shared visions and discussed strategies and unanimously agreed that VLS should hold more legal aid clinics in the future to spread legal awareness among the needy people.
The seminar addressed questions like “Why do spouses terrorize and torture their partners?” “Why is it that the vast majority of batterers are men and the vast majority of victims are women?” and “Why does the community allow battering to continue?”
Members of Veritas Legal Society are mandated to offer basic legal advice and services to disadvantaged and needy believers without charging any fees. Our typical legal aid work involves counseling, informal negotiation, and appearances in administrative hearings.
