A2J Week 2019: Investing in Justice: Keynote & Reception

The Canadian Forum on Civil Justice (CFCJ) recently published “Investing in Justice: A Literature Review in Support of the Case for Improved Access”. This new report provides extensive evidence in support of the economic, financial and social benefits of spending to facilitate access to justice services and programs in Canada and abroad.

The “Investing in Justice” report examines research carried out across justice services and programs in several regions, including North America, Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, Australia and Asia. The report concludes that, “across a diversity of justice programs, services and mechanisms around the world, spending on justice results in significant economic and other benefits that generally significantly exceed the value of the investment.” In most cases, the rate of return on investment in justice services and programs is between CAD $9 and $16 for every CAD $1 that is spent.

This program will feature a keynote presentation by Trevor C.W. Farrow, Professor, Osgoode Hall Law School and Chair, Canadian Forum on Civil Justice.
