Access to Justice Week is an opportunity to engage with the access to justice movement that is taking place in BC and beyond.
This is a week devoted to considering how to improve the justice system by putting its users at the centre of decisions and processes. During this week, law students and legal professionals organize events to look more deeply at how to do this in the environments that surround them.
Check out this video from last year's Access to Justice Week to hear from field experts offering their perspectives on why it remains so difficult for people in BC to access the justice system.
Indeed, various actors are continuing to innovate within the justice system. Covid-19 has had a major impact on access to justice, while at the same time presenting opportunities to create a long-term, positive impact.
In February 2023, we will ask, "Access to justice - whose job is it anyway?"
In fact, the answer is that each of us have a unique role to play.
