To help make our clients aware of their legal rights and obligations, we offer free workshops on a variety of legal topics. Workshops can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your group. We also have a wide range of free pamphlets and other legal information available free at our office.
Twice a year we publish The Advocate, our clinic newsletter. This newsletter contains information about our areas of practice as well as what is new in the law and what events are happening in our community.
The latest three issues for downloading: Spring 2014, Fall 2013 and Spring 2013.
Our law reform activities arise out of issues identified through an analysis of the clinic’s caseload as well as those identified by those served by the clinic. We work with the community and for the community to make changes to laws and government policies that will benefit our clients and society as a whole.
We lobby the various levels of government through written and oral submissions for changes to laws affecting low income individuals. We will also meet with government departments to improve their service delivery to poor and disadvantaged groups.
We help to empower individuals and groups by helping them organize to enforce their legal rights. For instance, we might help a group of tenants form a tenants association to address repair or rent issues.
Contact the clinic today to discuss having a member of our staff come out and speak to your group.
