As a major corporate enterprise in the various jurisdictions we operate in, DFDL recognizes the importance of corporate social responsibility and is actively involved in numerous community development activities.
DFDL is proud to mark a decade since first sponsoring the Lao Rugby Federation (“LRF”) Champa Ban Connect for 2021 initiative.
DFDL’s support over the years has helped develop and promote rugby throughout the Lao PDR, as part of its commitment to community outreach, supporting worthy local initiatives and cultivating opportunities for young men and women across this landlocked, still developing and ruggedly beautiful land.
Our sponsorship of the LRF has allowed it to offer young people in Vientiane province access to sport and life skills development opportunities through the Pass It Back curriculum.
This has allowed players, coaches and families to train, play and practice together, forging a community spirit around sports and instilling confidence in the newest generation of male and female rugby players in the Lao PDR to aspire to ever greater sporting accomplishments and successes.
DFDL Myanmar’s Legal Advisers, prepared and coached undergraduate Myanmar law students for the national rounds of the Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition 2019 and 2020.
Jessup is the world’s largest moot court competition, held every year, with participants from over 680 law schools spread across 100 countries and jurisdictions. The Competition simulates a fictional dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice, the judicial arm of the United Nations, with one team from every eligible school allowed to participate.
The teams were then tasked with preparing oral and written arguments and rebuttals for both the applicant and respondent positions of the case.
Coaching session covered the fundamentals of persuasive legal writing, analysis of legal issues, along with a brief overview on the core precepts of public international law relevant to this event.
