Many child protection issues involve out-of-court solutions. However, despite the critical issues at play, too often parents and children do not have the benefit of representation or legal advice until or unless a case is brought to court. Our panel of experts will address critical gaps in access to counsel and discuss the following issues:
Efforts being made to ensure that parents/children get access to representation/advice before a case gets to court;
Circumstances when it would be prudent to have out of court representation/advice;
Funding options available through Legal Aid Ontario;
Remedies available when matters go awry without parties having the benefit of legal advice.
Charter implications and creative court challenges ahead.
Join us for an exploration of this unChartered territory, as we search for innovations to improve access to justice for our clients.
