Why Legal Aid Matters by Sarah Buhler, College of Law
In this talk, I discuss the vital importance of publicly funded legal aid in the context of a justice system and legal regime that disproportionately impact members of marginalized communities. The talk will include some history and background about legal aid programs in Canada and will argue that legal aid can both mitigate harm, and promote justice, for people who find themselves drawn into the system.
