Access to Justice Project

Since 2014, first year law students in the Professionalism and the Law course have engaged in a project developed to education them about the obstacles faced by citizens who are unable to access the justice system.

In 2014 and 2015, first year law students created public services announcements (PSAs) with a goal of preventing common legal problems before they happened.

In 2016, first year law students engaged in a poster contest to explain or simplify the court procedures involved with solving one of two commonly faced civil legal problems. The winners went onto to engage in a school-wide competition.
