Revised: May 2016

 

   

ACCESS TO JUSTICE  

“ Justice delayed is justice denied.” A familiar refrain which is increasingly relevant in today’s justice system. Criminal courts face mounting backlogs and a shrinking public appetite to fund provincial legal aid programs. Family litigants, faced with increasing and often unrealistic costs of litigation are frequently turning to the daunting task of self representation. The continued vitality and viability of our justice system will be measured by how we face and overcome these challenges. 

INITIATIVES WITHIN OUR CANADIAN LAW SCHOOLS

As a key justice system stakeholder, the CCLD membership works to inspire students to develop a commitment to making justice services available to the widest possible constituency. The CCLD views this as a unique opportunity to assist in shaping the views, agendas, and commitments of the future leaders of the legal community. All of the member faculties are committed to addressing these issues in a concerted and proactive manner and the undertakings and programs presently offered by the various member faculties are both diverse and impressive and include important financial commitments to clinical programs and courses, and scholarships and financial aid for diverse students. By ensuring diversity within our faculties, we can best ensure that our graduates are well positioned to understand and effectively represent diverse interest groups in society. Please see the complete list of ACCESS TO JUSTICE INITIATIVES IN CANADIAN LAW SCHOOLS 

Recognition must also be given to the excellent work overseen by Justice Cromwell and his committees investigating access to justice issues in the areas of family and civil law. The efforts of the Canadian Bar Association to highlight these issues must also be acknowledged. The CBA report “Reaching Equal Justice Report: An invitation to Envision and Act” outlines 31 targets with milestones and immediate action to be taken. 

The CCLD is dedicated to being an active partner in these undertakings and a number of our faculties have jointly committed an additional $60,000 in funding for new access to Justice Initiatives within their faculties. Working together with other stakeholders offers hope for the most promising outcomes for a more effective and responsive justice system.
