Three Areas of Law Impacting Your Student Outcomes

Many areas of law intersect with and impact a young person’s access to, and pathway through, our education systems. In this session Justice for Children and Youth, Ontario’s specialty child rights legal clinic, will explore three such intersections – immigration law for young people with no or precarious immigration status, special education systems and their legal framework, and youth criminal justice.

Date and time: Thursday, August 19, 1:00 – 2:00 p.m.


Sarah Pole, Program Director, Childhood Arrivals Support and Advocacy (CASA), Justice for Children and Youth Legal Clinic

Erica Lalonde, Program Manager, Enhancing Access to Special Education (EASE), Justice for Children and Youth Legal Clinic

Kaffie Abdirashid, Education Advocate, Justice Centre – North West Toronto, Justice for Children and Youth Legal Clinic
