Justice Education Symposium

As part of its mandate to encourage other law schools and postsecondary institutions to develop their own youth outreach programs, each spring LAWS presents a Justice Education Symposium for Postsecondary Institutions.

This two-day event, a collaboration with the Ontario Justice Education Network (OJEN), showcases different justice themed youth outreach programming models, justice education resources, and expertise in successfully promoting an understanding of the justice system in partnership with academic institutions. The symposium provides an annual opportunity for law schools, postsecondary institutions, members of the legal profession, representatives of youth and community organizations, and educators to connect, share best practices and explore partnership possibilities. In past years attendees have come from all over Ontario and from outside the province.

There is no registration fee to attend this annual event. Conference materials, snacks and lunch are provided for both days. Information about the 2012 symposium will be posted soon.

Agendas from past years’ symposia are below:
