Increasing Legal Literacy and Access to Justice for Rural Residents and Linguistic Communities
Connecting across language and distance: Linguistic and Rural Access to Legal Information and Services (2008)
Priority areas of law are:
“Better integration of legal services in Ontario’s clinics, staff offices and duty counsel offices, coupled with a referral system based on strong partnerships with the social service sector would be a highly desirable goal.”
Effort is needed …. “to create a systemic response to access to justice challenges that builds from a shared vision, involves all who need to be part of it, identifies the highest priorities, and explores the benefits of working together.” (p. 58)
“Legal and non-legal organizations will work together as a coherent system to improve access to legal information and services for persons who do not speak English or French or who live in rural or remote areas of Ontario.” (p. 60)
