Supreme Court Justice Karakatsanis, as Chair of the Action Committee on Access to Justice in Civil and Family Matters, is calling all young legal professionals and law students to complete a short survey to understand your views and experiences around A2J.
Although there has been an increase in awareness to the crisis of A2J in the ten years since the foundational Roadmap for Change (pdf) report was released, there is a substantial amount of work to do. The results of the survey will inform future work of the national committee and it is important to include Manitoba perspectives.
If you were called to the Bar less than 10 years ago, or if you are a law or articling student, please take 5-10 minutes to fill out this important survey.
