LEVEL, as a part of its initiative to raise awareness and promote discussions around barriers to equality and currents issues of access to justice, has arranged for a panel to speak to law students. This panel has a range of speakers from various organizations in Winnipeg that provide access to justice (A2J) services for Manitobans. The panel will provide an overview to law students of the various A2J services in Manitoba and why they should consider working or volunteering pro bono to promote better access to justice. The panel will focus on participants’ experience and the value gained from A2J services, as well as the challenges they see in Manitoba when it comes to A2J issues.

Confirmed guests include…

Tarik Daoudi, Articling Student of Association des juristes d’expression francaise du Manitoba representing InfoJustice Manitoba

Byron Williams, Director of Public Interest Law Centre

Paula Hamilton, Executive Director of Legal Help Centre

An Aboriginal Courtroom Worker from Manitoba Department of Justice will also be in attendance. As well, we hope to have a Protection Order Designate (POD) from the Family Violence Team at A Woman’s Place join, subject to availability.

This event is open to all and will include a Q & A period at the end.
