The Law Society of Ontario’s Action Group on Access to Justice (TAG) Committee again sought input to assist in its ongoing review of the Law Society’s approach to Access to Justice and Legal Line answered the call. The Access to Justice Week (A2J Week) marks its fifth year in 2020.
The Week’s awareness-building program focused on the impacts of COVID-19 on legal professions and justice sector’s COVID response, public legal education, mental health, as well as Indigenous, language and human rights.
Access to Justice Week provides an opportunity for those who work in Canada’s justice sector to convene and take a close look at progress that has been made – and where gaps persist—to make justice more accessible to people across the country. Legal Line once again proudly participated as part of our ongoing commitment to furthering the cause of Access to Justice for all Canadians.
