Steps to Justice: Your guide to law in Ontario
Steps to Justice – Here we go!
In case you haven’t seen this yet, a brand new website was launched in January under the leadership of CLEO (Community Legal Education Ontario) that you will want to check out.
Launched with support from TAG (The Action Group), Steps to Justice (www.stepstojustice.ca) is a new public legal information website that covers several areas of law, including family law. What makes it different from other websites is (i) the way it presents its information in a user-friendly Q and A format using straight-forward language, and (ii) the fact that its content has been thoroughly vetted by family lawyers and the courts. As a result, the website enables clients to find clear answers to their legal questions more easily, along with suggested next steps and referrals for additional information.
The Steps to Justice website is especially unique as external organizations are able to embed this new content on their own websites to share with their users. This means family lawyers, mediators, parenting coordinators and others now have a credible and fairly comprehensive source of family law information that can be readily made available to their clients.
I want to thank CLEO’s executive director, Julie Matthews, for bringing this project to fruition, as well as patti cross and others who helped to champion this project from its inception. I also want to thank the many family lawyers who helped to develop and vet the new content. Great work team!
