Street Legal: Perspectives on Regulatory Justice for the Street-Involved

The Ticket Defence Program is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a conference on February 24, 2017! 

Join us as we draw on the collective insight of a variety of institutional actors directly involved in the administration of regulatory justice, and learn about how it affects homeless and street-involved communities in Ontario and Quebec.

Homeless and street-involved people deserve fair and equitable treatment from the justice system – and it’s in the collective interest of social service providers, law enforcement, judicial officers, and legislators to ensure those rights are protected.

This is the result of collaboration between three law school-operated legal clinic initiatives—the Ticket Defence Program, Fair Change Community Legal Clinic and the Mobile Legal Clinic—providing pro bono legal services in Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal, respectively.

Former Ontario Attorney General Michael Bryant will deliver the keynote address, and panels will feature notable lawyers, academics, police, and service providers.
