Support Piddington PLT’s Justice Projects

Our grads are working on projects to advance justice, and they want your help

As part of Piddington PLT, our grads are allocated at least 20 hours to work on a justice project. This allows them to identify an issue they think is important that can make justice more accessible or promote the values of Piddington.

Directors duties for non-profits

Lawyers are often called in to lend their skills to community and non-profit groups.

Community legal education templates

Two grads will be assisting Circle Green Community Legal with the preparation of their community legal education projects.

Assisting self-represented litigants

Here, three grads intend to create templates and information sheets to assist self-represented litigants in the areas of wills and estates, family law (specifically trial preparation), and criminal injury compensation.

CLE for homeless people

Creating a video series for community legal education, two grads will focus on the relevant legal issues facing people who experience homelessness.

Supporting clients with mental health issues

Two grads have noticed that lawyers struggle to communicate with clients with mental health issues. This can lead to several access to justice issues, including less time spent speaking with certain clients or a reluctance to have them engage in the first place.
