The UVic Law 325, ‘Access to Justice: Designing Change in the Legal Sector’ course confronts the fact of diminishing access to justice and responds with proactive, problem-solving, and human-centred approaches. The aim is to provide both theoretical and practical frameworks and methods to help students recognize, understand, and respond to access to justice issues.
The course is taught by Professor Robert Lapper, QC who is the Lam Chair in Law and Public Policy at University of Victoria.
Sharing our experiences in designing for justice with projects like the BC Online Divorce Assistant is one of the ways OXD supports access to justice initiatives. Our work with the Ministry of the Attorney General of British Columbia on this project helped provide fair and equitable access to justice through Agile development and citizen-centred design.
We’d be happy to speak about our experience at your next event or initiative.
