Justice 101 Workshops

Justice 101 workshops are designed to introduce common legal issues to hard to reach youth. Groups that have benefited from Justice 101 Workshops include:

  • Newcomer youth
  • Francophone youth
  • First Nations, Metis and Inuit youth
  • Youth from Toronto’s Neighbourhood Improvement Areas
  • Youth in alternative schools.

Justice 101 workshops are facilitated by a range of justice sector volunteers (lawyers, judges, paralegals, etc.). They use scenarios and interactive activities to build young people’s comfort with legal issues. Topics include:

  • Interacting with the Police
  • Criminal Law
  • Employment Law
  • Landlord Tenant Law
  • Immigration Law
  • Human Rights Law

If you work with one of these groups of youth and would like to request an OJEN Program, please contact us at lbrown@ojen.ca.
