Key aspects of the partnership include:

Practical Engagement: LSPs will have the opportunity to work closely with AKaP in various initiatives aimed at supporting indigenous communities. Learning Opportunities: LSPs will gain firsthand experience in navigating the legal landscape surrounding indigenous peoples, including understanding and applying relevant laws, rules, and regulations.

Community Impact: The collaboration seeks to make a positive impact on indigenous communities by addressing legal issues, fostering sustainable practices, and advocating for the protection of their rights. Knowledge Exchange: The MoA facilitates a continuous exchange of knowledge and resources between TDSOL and AKaP, promoting a mutually beneficial relationship.

It is an exciting step forward in the pursuit of holistic legal education, where students not only study the law but actively contribute to its application for the betterment of society.
