Canadian Bar Association Access to Justice Project Paper on Underexplored Alternatives for the Middle Class
It is part of the CBA's Envisioning Equal Justice initiative announced at the 2012 Canadian Legal Conference in Vancouver.
"This Discussion Paper outlines current challenges to providing access to justice for the middle class and identifies the main approaches being used and proposed to address those challenges. Our particular focus is on new ways for lawyers to provide their services, offering opportunities for the profession to consider a broader range of assistance at various price options for the middle class."The CBA is asking for responses by March 31, 2013.
"The Discussion Paper concludes with several questions that we hope will elicit further discussion and debate as to how the CBA can best support the Bar in responding to these new opportunities .This Discussion Paper was prepared for distribution and consultation beginning at the CBA Mid-Winter Meeting of Council, February 15 - 17 2013."
