Middle Income Access to Justice book launch will be celebrated Nov. 21, 2012, with a Town Hall moderated by the Toronto Star’s Ellen Roseman

November 19, 2012

The Fac­ul­ty of Law is pleased to cel­e­brate the book launch of Mid­dle Income Access to Jus­tice (Michael Tre­bil­cock, Antho­ny Dug­gan and Lorne Sossin, eds.) with a Town Hall on Novem­ber 21, 2012, mod­er­at­ed by con­sumer advo­cate, reporter and blog­ger Ellen Rose­man of the Toron­to Star

The dis­cus­sion will cen­tre on the lat­est issues and devel­op­ments in the access to jus­tice cri­sis, par­tic­u­lar­ly for mid­dle-income Cana­di­ans. Lead­ing fig­ures from the Ontario legal com­mu­ni­ty will give updates on fam­i­ly, con­sumer/debtor-cred­i­tor and employ­ment law and open the dis­cus­sion to the pub­lic. View the list of speak­ers here.

The book is the cul­mi­na­tion of the ideas, strate­gies and con­crete solu­tions result­ing from the Fac­ul­ty of Law’s suc­cess­ful 2011 Access to Jus­tice col­lo­qui­um, with keynote speak­er SCC Chief Jus­tice Bev­er­ley McLach­lin. The col­lo­qui­um tapped into the bright­est legal minds in the acad­e­my, legal pro­fes­sion and orga­ni­za­tions across Cana­da, the US and over­seas to effect change in the legal land­scape for Cana­di­ans caught in the middle—too rich to receive pub­lic legal aid, not rich enough to afford legal fees.
