The Law Society’s call for comment on its approach to access to justice closes on May 31, 2019. Read our response here: PBO’s Submission to LSO’s Call for Comment on A2J.
Pro Bono Ontario still does not have the sustainable funding it needs to keep all its programs and services running past December 2019. This is an important opportunity for PBO and our volunteers to make the case that the Law Society needs to help solve this problem. Pursuant to its statutory mandate to facilitate access to justice, the Law Society should recognize PBO’s essential role in the overall legal services delivery system and make sure PBO has the resources it needs to provide high quality pro bono opportunities to lawyers like all of you.
We ask that you review this material and submit your own supportive comment. Instructions on how to do so can be found here: Access to Justice Consultation.
