Clinic Day

The idea behind the Clinic Day is to have a lawyer present in the community to answer legal questions that people may have.

A Clinic Day provides community members with an opportunity to access legal information and legal assistance, whether or not they have a matter before the courts. Clinic Days give community members greater access to legal services; and for lawyers, an opportunity to spend time in the community.

A Clinic Day may also be for presentations and workshops. The Public Legal Education & Communications Office, Community Legal Worker and a lawyer would attend a community or school to present on a topic, e.g. bullying, YCJA, etc.
