Legal Sourcery is, for a third year, home to Saskatchewan Access to Justice Week announcements and highlights. In the days leading up to the week, we are announcing events that may be of interest to the public, lawyers, law students, and law faculty, and members of disciplines outside of law.
Today’s post highlights events that (i) invite the public to participate in a conversation on how to improve access to justice, or (ii) provide information for the public on resources and services that can be accessed, which aim to improve access to justice for Saskatchewan residents.
