Can Regulation Advance Access to Justice?

  • October 14, 2016

That’s the big question up for discussion at CBA’s next Twitterchat on Tuesday, October 18 at 12:00 p.m. ET.

Join the CBA Access to Justice Committee, as a part of Access to Justice Week organized by TAG – The Action Group on Access to Justice, as we consider if we can - indeed if we should – foster access to justice through legal regulation. If access to justice is made a part of a lawyer’s ethical responsibilities and regulated by law societies, as considered in the CBA’s report Equal Justice: Balancing the Scales, could access to justice finally be obtainable in Canada?

Join host Amy Salyzyn, a law professor at the University of Ottawa and an expert in legal ethics currently researching innovative ways to foster access to justice, as she lets you weigh in on the matter. 

How can law societies help strengthen the link between access to justice and lawyers’ ethical identity? Have some thoughts you’d like to share? Want to see what others think? Join the conversation on Twitter at #cbaa2j #a2j2016.
