A group in the Netherlands called XS2Justice Foundation has been working for years to develop a special business model for third world countries to improve access to justice. Part of that business model includes a tool to finance legal services for the poor -- about 4 billion people worldwide cannot rely on the law for protection, and more than 80 percent of property and people remain unregistered, according to the foundation.
“Non-profits, legal aid systems and pro-bono lawyering help the underprivileged find access to justice. But there will never be enough manpower to help 4 billion people,” said Rob C.T. Van Rooij, founder and chairman of XS2Justice Foundation. “An out-of-the-box, sustainable and scalable solution is needed.”

She enrolled in ASU Online to watch lectures and engage with her peers and professors.

Each year, Centennial College hosts a mock disaster training day for students, medical staff and first responders in Toronto, Canada. Hundreds of volunteers, including Centennial students, role play to simulate emergency situations. This year it was a subway crash and a mass shooting, and one of the college’s campuses served as a mock hospital.
The annual event lets medical professionals work and problem solve together and better prepares them for real life disaster situations. Plus, students get hands on experience that is impossible to have in the classroom.
Rosalyn Yorke, a student in the School of Biological Sciences at University of Leeds, says despite her very best efforts, she’s never going to pick up on 100% of what a lecturer says during class.
