Law Centre Sharing Space With New Justice Access Centre

The Law Centre’s new location sharing space with the newly created Victoria Justice Access Centre in the Victoria courthouse will vastly improve access to justice in the city.

“The Law Centre is one of the University of Victoria’s most important and long-standing programs. It provides legal assistance to some of Victoria's neediest citizens at the same time as giving law students a stellar educational experience,” says Donna Greschner, dean of UVic’s faculty of law.

Construction of the $1.5-million Justice Access Centre (JAC) in the former land titles office will begin in November and it is expected to open in the fall of 2013. It will provide a central place for people with family and civil law problems to get help and better understand the justice system.
