Access to Justice Game

In any given 3 year period, nearly 12 million Canadians will experience at least one legal problem.  Few will have the resources to solve them. The curriculum-linked Access to Justice game increases students' understanding of the challenges faced by individuals accessing the justice system to resolve a variety of common legal difficulties, from landlord tenant disputes to family law issues.  OJEN/ROEJ offers the A2J game as part of Flip Your Wig For Justice campaign. Have fun!
