Clinical Legal Education and Access to Justice for Marginalized Tenants

About the project

Lead Investigator: Sarah Buhler

Project Partners: Community Legal Assistance Services For Saskatoon Inner City Inc. (CLASSIC)

This project, funded by the Law Foundation of Saskatchewan, investigates the impact of advocacy by law students at CLASSIC in the context of housing law hearings.  Through qualitative interviews with tenants who were self-represented and who were represented by CLASSIC during their housing law hearings, the research study seeks to understand the experience of representation and access to justice in an important administrative law context.  This study addresses a significant empirical gap in access to justice research in the areas of clinic law and administrative law contexts.
