OJEN has developed a series of 10 classroom workshops that introduce students to 10 common areas of law. Using hypothetical scenarios as a starting point, students explore a range of legal issues using the Steps to Justice website, developed by Community Legal Education Ontario (CLEO). This online resource gives practical step-by-step information about navigating legal problems, including forms, self-help guides and referral information for legal and social services. Workshops are designed,not only to familiarize participants to the specific area of law, but to introduce them to a valuable resource for dealing with legal questions they may encounter in the future.
OJEN’s Steps to Justice workshops are a fun and accessible way to introduce students to the following areas of law:
Each workshop is completely self-contained, including a slide presentation, teachers guide and student worksheets. For more information on how to use the workshop guide, you can also check out our short training video.
