About Us

The Public Interest Law Clinic is guided by our statement of vision, mission, and objectives:

Our vision is for a just Canadian society that values and respects all people and the environment in which we live.

Our mission is to advocate effectively for systemic change that values and advances the well-being of the public and the environment.

Our objective is to promote systemic change by:

  • Involving law students directly in public interest issues through legal research, writing and advocacy
  • Working with other organizations and individuals to advocate for systemic change in public law matters, including issues that affect the disadvantaged and the environment
  • Advocating for law reform through legislative proposals and impact litigation
  • Strengthening access to justice through pro bono legal research and advocacy

The clinic was started with a large and generous donation from the Peacock Family Foundation.

Our long-term operations will rely on further community and foundational support. Send us an e-mail if you are interested in making a donation.
