COMMUNITY OUTREACH

In addition to providing free legal services to the residents of Elgin and Oxford Counties, the clinic is involved in educating the community through public legal education projects, law reform, activities and other forms of outreach.

Clinic staff regularly visit local schools and agencies to discuss issues related to poverty law and justice. The clinic has also been involved in the annual law day celebrations with area schools.

Law Day

Law Day is a national celebration aimed at promoting a better understanding of the law and highlighting the important role the justice system plays in today’s society. As part of its Law Day activities this year, Legal Aid Ontario invited Grade 5 students from across Ontario to submit posters on this year’s theme of “Diversity: Celebrating your right to be unique.”

Tanisha Thammavongsa from Tillsonburg took first prize for her poster depicting people of many cultures surrounding a drawing of the globe to show universal diversity. Tanisha’s poster was chosen from among more than 2,000 entries across the province.
