The theme for this year will be "Pursuit in the ideal of Justice" This year's theme is premised on the current context of our society and the world at large. We live in a time in which this ideal is ever more questioned to be seen. Whether our society at large, through our legal system, and with specific regard from a labour law context, is indeed achieving this ideal for a better purpose.
