This session will provide an overview of and seek feedback on a recent report, “Community Justice Help: Advancing Community-Based Access to Justice”, released by Community Legal Education Ontario. Register here.
Authored by Julie Mathews (CLEO) and David Wiseman (uOttawa), the report proposes a new approach for enabling community workers (as non-lawyers) to provide assistance for law-related problems. The report puts forward a three-part framework for supporting, rather than discouraging, “community justice help”, and in so doing enabling community workers to play a role in advancing access to justice.
Welcoming participants from all provinces, this session will look beyond Ontario to explore the extent to which community justice help is available in other Canadian jurisdictions and the extent to which it is enabled and supported by local regulators both at present and through emerging initiatives.

A report presentation will be followed by participant discussion.
