The Justice Innovation and Access to Justice Program supports the development of experiential learning programs on access to justice and innovation for JD Candidates at Osgoode Hall Law School. The courses developed through the Program provide JD Candidates with an opportunity to learn the theory and tools needed to promote innovation in the legal field, apply these tools in hypothetical case studies and simulations, build partnerships with community organizations, and apply these theories to real world access to justice issues. To date, the Program has resulted in the development of three new courses that were piloted this past academic year. This project is funded in part by York University’s Academic Innovation Fund.
At the conclusion of this three-year project in the spring of 2018, the Winkler Institute’s prepared a report charting the program’s progress and successes.
