Free Public Lecture – Everyday Legal Problems and the Cost of Justice

with Professor David Wiseman, University of Ottawa

The legal system faces criticism for not providing more affordable ways for people to resolve their ‘everyday legal problems’ in consumer, employment, family, housing and other civil justice areas. Providing more help might be costly for public budgets, but there is also a cost to individuals and society of not providing enough access to justice. In this session, Professor Wiseman will share the results of the latest Canadian survey of everyday legal problems – the first to investigate the cost of justice – and will explore recent and potential ways we might work to improve access to justice in Canada.
