Hey guys! Since last week, we have had a visit from 10 students of Thomas More Law School - Australian Catholic University. This probono study tour was part of the 2019 New Colombo Plan that lasted for 2 weeks in Surabaya. It started with an Introduction to Indonesian Cultures and a Basic Bahasa Indonesia class. They also learned about the Indonesian law system given by friends from Universitas Katolik Darma Cendika in Surabaya. They even visited Surabaya's Public Court (Pengadilan Negeri Surabaya)! They also visited WALHI, an NGO who works in the area of human rights and clean living environment. On Friday, November 29th, it was the ACU friends together with their Probono Advisor/Law Professor, Dominic Cudmore, who gave Indonesian students a seminar about the law system in Australia as well as a general knowledge on Australia. The busy first week was closed with a visit on Saturday, November 30th, to Bung Karno's grave, the first president of Indonesia, and Gus Dur's grave, the fourth president of Indonesia.
It was a blast for a first week and a very memorable cultural exchanges between students from two completely different backgrounds! Don't miss out on our second week's report, guys!
