Pro Bono Students Canada Family Law Project


"I loved sitting in the middle of the courthouse where all the action took place.  It allows you to interact with other lawyers and other court staff who are equally as important in the legal process."

- Student from the University of Toronto Faculty of Law

If you are interested in family law, public interest and community service, the Family Law Rotation for First Years (FLRP) and the Family Law Project for Upper-Years (FLP) are a great way to get involved at PBSC.

First Year students have the opportunity to attend lunch & learns hosted by leading family law practitioners. During the second semester, students apply their knowledge by working on pro bono files under the supervision of Epstein Cole lawyers, or delivering Public Legal Education (PLE) seminars to women’s shelters in the GTA.

Upper-Year students provide support to LAO staff, duty counsel, and advice lawyers, at three Family Law Courthouses in the GTA. Students help unrepresented litigants draft court documents and provide legal information.

If you are an Upper-Year student who has completed the FLP program, why not work at the Family Law Courthouses this summer?
