OJEN’s Kingston Region Committee includes volunteers from the justice and education sectors who work together to organize justice education programs for students and youth.
It is co-chaired by Greg Dobney, a lawyer at Cunningham Swan LLP, and Andrea Barrow, a law teacher with Limestone District School Board. Committee members include judges from both the Ontario and Superior Courts of Justice, Crown lawyers and lawyers from the private bar, secondary school teachers, staff from Queen’s Law School and law students.
The Kingston Region Committee commits on delivering programs that are responsive to local needs by collaborating with teachers and community partners. The committee strives to facilitate connections between youth and the legal community that promote greater understanding of the justice sector and the community it serves.
