There is a new access to justice initiative called The Family Law Workshop, which answers Justice Bonkalo’s challenge to lawyers to do a better job of providing alternative (and more affordable) service options for the many family law clients who are unrepresented in family court. The Family Law Workshop provides family law information in an affordable small group format designed for self-reps, clients already working with a lawyer or non-lawyer professionals who work with family law clients. The goal is to provide a new low cost way to become more informed and, as a result, empowered to make better decisions. The challenge is to connect with the clients who desperately need this type of service.
The upcoming workshop, Understanding Family Law (Thursday Sept 28, 6-8 pm), is taking place in the west end of the city at Swansea Town Hall. It is designed for everyone and anyone, including self-reps, clients with lawyers and non-lawyer professionals who work with family law clients. Click here to download the flyer.
