“Pro bono and community interest work defines the character of Sok Siphana & Associates and its staff. I am a passionate believer that pro bono works are important not only in and of themselves, but because of the role they play in shaping our values and attitudes towards the law, our communities, the clients our firm represents and our society at large.”

We recognise that we have a responsibility to take an active role in society, using our legal and other skills for the benefit of the public. Using our knowledge to help others extends to education.

In 2009, he taught WTO laws and Commercial Laws courses at the Royal University of Law and Economics (RULE), and lectured Pro Bono once a month at the Royal School of Administration (RSA). The RSA, since its re-establishment in 1995, was mandated to select and train future senior and mid level civil servants in the area of General Administration, Economy and Finance, and Diplomacy.
