Access to Justice Week: September 28 – October 5, 2019

October 1, 2019

Access to Justice can mean many things. It can mean getting the information necessary to know one’s legal rights and responsibilities. It can mean having meaningful access to the courts or another dispute resolution system when faced with a conflict. It can mean being able to retain a lawyer to represent one’s interests. It can mean having a say in the content of the laws that govern us. It can mean all this and more.
There are many groups and individuals who work hard everyday to provide greater access to justice for Albertans. For one week this fall, they will be hosting events and activities across the province highlighting the importance of justice, the barriers to accessing it, and the ways we can work together to break down those barriers. Visit the Alberta Access to Justice Week website for blog postings, event listings and more.
