The National Access to Justice Week is taking place from October 24 to 28.
The Law Society of Manitoba has partnered with the Manitoba Bar Association and the University of Manitoba for the third annual National Access to Justice Week and will offer four free virtual events open to the public. See here for more info or view all the events on our Calendar.
The University of Manitoba Faculty of Law along with the Law Society has also created an Access to Justice blog.
“The site will highlight developments related to access to justice from across Canada, with an emphasis on those relevant to Manitoba. Assistant Professor Gerard Kennedy has initiated the blog in collaboration with Natasha Brown, Access to Justice Coordinator at the Law Society of Manitoba. This joint initiative of Kennedy and Brown will host posts on at least a weekly basis authored by themselves and law students, along with occasional posts from other law professors and access to justice stakeholder organizations within Manitoba.”
