Access to Justice Consultation

Access to Justice Review
The Law Society’s Access to Justice Committee is conducting a review of the Law Society’s approach to access to justice.
Unmet legal needs have a profound negative impact on individuals and society in Ontario. To address these needs with finite resources and a defined regulatory mandate, the Law Society must ensure its access to justice initiatives are effective and consistent with its statutory functions.
On May 31, 2019, the committee concluded a call for comment on the initiatives described in its Consultation Paper.
The committee is currently reviewing the submissions received and plans to report back to Convocation (the Law Society’s board) with its recommendations.
