Epstein Cole is Founding Partner of the Family Justice Centre
Working together with Pro Bono Students Canada and Legal Aid Ontario
Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC), together with Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) and Epstein Cole LLP, is pleased to announce the launch of its new Family Justice Centre (FJC).
The FJC presents an innovative opportunity to bring together law students and pro bono lawyers to deliver free legal services to low-income, self-represented family law litigants in Ontario. The FJC will launch virtually in the fall of 2020, utilizing videoconferencing technology to connect litigants with law students and pro bono lawyers to provide responsive legal services that go beyond summary advice.
The launch of the FJC is made possible by Epstein Cole’s generous foundational donation of $150,000. “Philip M. Epstein, Q.C. and Epstein Cole’s leadership in access to justice and mentoring the next generation of family law lawyers is unparalleled in Canada. We are excited for this next chapter in our long-standing partnership,” said Brittany Twiss, National Director of PBSC.
