Ongoing Projects

The Public Interest Law Clinic will take on projects that meet the following criteria:

  1. To maximize the ability of individuals and groups to participate effectively in decisions that affect the environment;
  2. To establish safeguards to prevent strategic litigation against public participation;
  3. To generate effective legal mechanisms that protect habitat in Alberta which threatened species need to survive;
  4. To improve every lever available in law to obtain information from public bodies;
  5. To change facially neutral laws that disproportionately affect the disadvantaged; and,
  6. To generate opportunities for civil society organizations to intervene effectively in appellate cases.
