The Law Centre
The Law Centre provides clinical legal education to students enrolled in the Faculty of Law, while also providing an outreach and service to the community. The Law Centre provides a range of legal services to low-income clients through a clinic located off campus at the Victoria Courthouse. Students enroll in the program as a full term, for credit, course within the faculty. In each of three terms, students spend the first four weeks in the orientation part of the program delivered at the law school. For the remainder of each term, students attend the clinic fulfilling the role of articled students, directly interviewing, advising, and representing clients with legal matters, with the supervision, advice, and assistance of lawyers in the office.
The method of clinical legal education places students in an experiential setting where they may critically observe aspects of the legal system. Students develop an understanding of their professional role within that system, and develop knowledge, values, and skills relevant to the practice of law. Through the clinic’s focus on assisting clients who would otherwise be unable to afford a lawyer and who have other challenges, students gain an understanding of the health, social, and economic contexts in which legal issues arise. While assisting students to become knowledgeable, skilled, and compassionate legal professionals, the clinic provides an important contribution to access to justice in the community.
