Everyone Legal Clinic receives two Canadian Law Awards
It's always nice to be recognized for our diversity and access to justice efforts! We've been twice honoured as a 2023 Excellence Awardee by the Canadian Law Awards for:
- Diversity Initiative of the Year; and
- the Lincoln Alexander School of Law Award for Shaping the Future.
The Everyone Legal Clinic was twice selected as a 2023 Excellence Awardee from among hundreds nominations of law firms and legal departments across the nation.
The Diversity Initiative of the Year is judged on "the concrete steps the law firm or law department took during 2022 to promote diversity and inclusion in the legal profession." The Lincoln Alexander School of Law Award for Shaping the Future is judged on "the concrete steps taken by the law firm during 2022 to demonstrate a commitment to any or all of the following; EDI as a core organizational value, to strengthen access to justice for underrepresented communities, to advance legal services through innovation, and to invest in legal education through mentorship and beyond."
