Event Review – Connect, Create, Communicate: Public Legal Education and the Access to Justice Movement

November 8, 2016 | By |

On October 20-21, 2016 over 190 access to justice advocates from across Canada participated in a two-day conference to advance knowledge, skills and awareness about promising practices in public legal education and current issues in the push for access to justice in Ontario. This event was organized by TAG and LawConnect Ontario.

With 24 sessions and 92 speakers the discussion over the two days explored a wide range of topics from the thin line between legal information, new roles for lawyers and paralegals to storytelling as a tool for engagement and policy making. We were thrilled to have #PLEA2J trend on the first day of the conference!
