As part of its effort to eradicate poverty within its jurisdiction, the city of Liuzhou in South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region recently dispatched a public legal service team to one of its impoverished villages where professionals would try to address villagers' various legal concerns.
The team provided the 12 registered poor families in the village with comprehensive legal services including explanations of the law, offering legal consultations, recording their needs and providing concrete help.
They also tailored their services for each of the families, focusing on issues closely related to their livelihoods such as agricultural production, migration for jobs and starting businesses.
The team offered a variety of free legal services including legal aid, notarization, judicial authentication, arbitration and mediation on the streets of the village, addressing 15 legal issues from the villagers on the day they arrived and receiving a good deal of praise from the public.
According to the city's judicial department, it will continue to provide legal services in rural impoverished areas in an effort to win the critical battle against poverty.
