For this reason, we are adapting and we will make the best effort so that digital talks and workshops add value to our community ”.

This initiative was carried out thanks to the support of the Pro Bono Foundation and was about "How to regulate the employment relationship in times of crisis?" focused on the new Employment Protection Law and the Telework Law. The talk was led by attorneys Catalina Malgarejo and Sergio Fuica from the Guerrero Olivos law firm.

The way in which we solve legal problems today is decisive in containing the impacts of this crisis and promoting a better quality of life in the future.“.
