Great news! Our own Access to Justice Centre for Excellence (ACE) has released the second edition of the UVic ACE NewsLinks! UVic ACE was established in 2015 as a response to the increasing access to justice issues facing our society. This organization seeks to engage law students with research related to procedural issues and delivery of legal services in the community.
This year we have two student volunteers working on the newsletter by researching access to justice developments in Canada. They will be writing about news stories, engaging in legal analysis on relevant access to justice issues, highlighting profiles of organizations engaged in access to justice, and promoting engagement and involvement in access to justice work. For example, this issue features a story on the tools law schools have developed in order to improve access to justice in their communities, as well as articles on how to narrow the access to justice gap in your practice after law school.
The newsletter will also have news about upcoming events related to pro bono and will be released on a regular basis. We highly encourage students and partner organizations to submit their own access to justice content that they would like to see included to firstname.lastname@example.org
