The Law Commission of Ontario (LCO) released on July 23 a long-awaited and important report on reform of the family justice system. Downtown Legal Services (DLS) at the University of Toronto received several mentions as the only student legal clinic in Ontario that provides family law assistance.
The LCO strongly recommends exploring additional ways to involve law students bridging the enormous gap in access to family law legal services. The shout out led a reporter from the CBC to contact DLS Director Lisa Cirillo, who was interviewed by CBC Radio’s Metro Morning on July 24. You can hear Lisa’s interview here.
