Description

The Chinese and Southeast Asian Legal Clinic (CSALC), formerly known as the Metro Toronto Chinese & Southeast Asian Legal Clinic, is turning 30!

To mark this special occasion, CSALC is convening a special panel to explore the issue of race, Canadian identity and a sense of belonging for racialized communities in Canada 150. CSALC will also show a special video looking back at the Clinic’s 30 years of community service.

The panel discussion will be followed by a reception at Convocation Hall with remarks from representatives of the Law Society of Upper Canada and the Board of Directors of CSALC, and from David Field, CEO of Legal Aid Ontario.
