Event description

Description

In his 2013 report on First Nation Representation on Ontario Juries, Justice Frank Iacobucci made the following recommendation:

Recommendation 6(d):

After obtaining the input of the Implementation Committee, the Ministry of the Attorney General provide broader and more comprehensive justice education programs for First Nations individuals, including...

(d) considering the feasibility of a program that would enlist students from Ontario law schools to participate in intensive summer education and legal assistance programs for First Nations representatives, dealing with the justice system generally and the jury system in particular, in consultation with Chiefs, and Court Services officials

To this end, the Indigenous Justice Division of the Ministry of the Attorney General now offers, in collaboration with all Ontario Law Schools, 10-14 week summer internship placements to first and second year law students during the months of May-August 2018. In 2018 up to three JD students from U of T Law will receive placements. (Please see UT Law Careers for the job posting).

On Wednesday, January 10, 2018, please join staff of the Indigenous Justice Division along with alumni of the Debwewin Summer program to learn more about opportunities available to U of T Law students and why this work is important. Pizza will be available.

For more information, contact Amanda Carling (Manager, Indigenous Initiatives) at amanda.carling@utoronto.ca

PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT IS ONLY FOR U OF T LAW STUDENTS CURRENTLY ENROLLED IN THE JD PROGRAM.
