Understanding the Legal Aid System in Ontario – February 2021

Where do low-income Ontarians get free or affordable legal help? Most people know that legal aid exists, but do you know how it actually works? Teachers, join us to dive into how Legal Aid operates, from a panel of lawyers who have been working in the system for years. We will review and explain the different types of help that Legal Aid offers, who can access them, and how.

Ideology and Violence: Why Charging Incels with Terrorism May Make Matters Worse

This webinar explores the questions about how we define “terrorism” and how Canadian law can – or should – address it. These are rich lines to explore with students, and OJEN has tools to help you do it. Prof. Reem Bahdi of the Faculty of Law at the University of Windsor and Fahad Ahmad of the School of Public Policy and Administration at Carleton University join us to discuss these issues.

Steps to Justice – Housing Law Workshop

OJEN’s Steps to Justice workshops introduce audiences to common legal problems and familiarize them with a specific area of law. Using hypothetical scenarios, workshop participants explore a legal topic by navigating the practical step-by-step information on CLEO’s Steps to Justice website. They learn how to use the website to find legal information, including the forms, self-help guides and referral information for legal and social services which may be helpful in working through a future legal problem. After this webinar, you will be able to confidently deliver the Steps to Justice workshop in your virtual classroom.

Teaching Law as a System with the Access to Justice Game

OJEN created the Access to Justice simulation game as a tool for introducing students to the way legal institutions and services in Ontario work as a system. Teachers and youth leaders have used the game to start conversations with young people about justice, fairness, and how people navigate the system when dealing with common legal problems. Join us for a short conversation about talking law with young people and a guided look at the Access to Justice Game!
