Crimson Youth Fund is hosting The International Youth Law Conference run by students for students to learn about taking up a career in law.

Grade 11 pupil Ryan Ferreira from Bishops High School was appointed as one of the executive producers for this conference taking place on a Zoom platform from Saturday, 2 to Sunday, 3 April 2022.

This conference aims to give high school pupils from all over the world a chance to interact with and learn from law students and top professionals in the legal field.

Ferreira says that they have organised mock trials, live speeches, and debates for students to watch and participate in and understand what it's like to work in the industry.
