With Law Day approaching, it gives lawyers and other related professionals the opportunity to find new ways to reach the public in providing information about the services that they provide.
The Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice, Pro Bono Law Saskatchewan, and the Law Society of Saskatchewan Library have continued to work together to host weekly drop-in help sessions on Wednesday mornings at the Regina Court of Queen’s Bench to help provide greater access to legal information and assistance.
In addition to these weekly help sessions, we have also been scheduling dates in Saskatoon on a monthly basis, partnering with the Saskatoon Public Library and PLEA to provide drop-in help sessions.
We will also be in attendance at the Legal Resources Fair later today at the Central Branch of the Regina Public Library and also at the Legal Resources Fair in Saskatoon on Sunday, April 17, 2016, giving people an opportunity to meet us, and to learn a little more about the services we provide. We are also looking forward to meeting other service professionals to discuss opportunities form partnerships with a view to providing a greater level of service.
We hope to meet many of you at one of the two upcoming resource fairs to discuss how we may better serve the public and co-ordinate with other agencies to reach more people in the province.
