Pro-Bono Students Canada is currently putting together a Union-Side Labour Law Project at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law. The goal of this project is not only to give students valuable experience in the area of law, but also to produce meaningful public legal education materials for unions and/or other community organizations.

If you know of any such organizations that might be interested in working with a small group of students in the coming school year please tell them to contact Lauren Pearce at pbscunionlabour@gmail.com for more information. Thank you.
