12 Dec Kagay-anon Lawyer Receives International Global Project Excellence Award @ Finland
Mga higala! KAGAY-ANON LAWYER, Jeza Mae Sarah Sanchez, has received a silver award from the International Project Management Association (IPMA), during a ceremony held in Helsinki, Finland, for developing an electronic learning tool for the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology’s (BJMP) paralegal officers.
The award-winning tool, made by Sanchez and their team, is called the Electronic Paralegal Learning Module (EPLM), it aims to equip paralegal officers with basic knowledge of the applicable laws on decongestion of jails.
“Paralegals are not yet lawyers, you cannot expect them to know these things, then the BMP also has no resources to train them one by one because it’s not part of our mandate. So basically the EPLM is a cost-effective capacity-building tool to enhance their knowledge and skills,” Sanchez said, who is also the current legal officer of the BJMP-Northern Mindanao office.

According to BJMP Chief Deogracias C. Tapayan, “It is the first project from the Philippines to be chosen as a finalist in the International Community of Project Management and we are glad that the BJMP and ICRC efforts were recognized as the second highest award due to its Outstanding Achievement and Innovation in Project Management Best Practice”.
