List some contents of the criminal law

In my opinion, the sexual assault policy only explains in detail what is sexual assault. I think maybe it should be necessary to list some of the contents of the criminal law against these sexual assaults so that one can understand its seriousness. [...] I think we should increase publicity because many, many students don’t know that these services are available and they don’t know where to go to find help. That’s all.
