A message from the new Executive Director…

Photo H - Leslie Ning - Déc. 2015Less than two months ago, I assumed the role of Executive Director at the Mile End Legal Clinic. During the past few weeks, I have been able to observe the variety of requests for legal assistance that come through the Clinic, the enthusiasm with which our law students work, as well as the invaluable help that our volunteer lawyers give on a daily basis.

In my role as Executive Director, I hope to be able to contribute to the Clinic in various ways, particularly in solidifying our sources of funding, in expanding our network of volunteer lawyers, especially with senior lawyers, in ensuring a prompt and useful follow-up to our clients, all the while maintaining the Clinic’s vibrant presence within the legal community.

Our organization’s mission to improve access to justice is certainly very ambitious, but over the past thirteen years, the Clinic has continuously demonstrated creativity and ingenuity in achieving its mission. It is faced with this challenge, as well as motivated by the desire to offer concrete assistance to individuals who come to our Clinic that I am stepping into 2016. Best wishes to all of the Clinic’s partners, volunteers and supporters and I look forward to meeting many of you in the coming year!
