  • Knowing your rights when dealing with police;
  • Procedures involved in the criminal justice system;
  • How to apply for a full service criminal defence lawyer;
  • How to deal with warrants;
  • Dealing with fines (MVA, etc.);
  • Income Assistance issues;
  • Residential Tenancies issues;
  • School Board issues;
  • Protection of Property Act (PPA) issues;

Youth will also have the opportunity to ask questions about pursuing a legal career, discussion of law school and the IB&M Initiative at Dalhousie University. There will also be shadowing opportunities for youth interested in seeing how things work at the courthouse.
