Social Work Law Talks is excited to welcome the University of Toronto’s own Lisa Cirillo who will speak about her work facilitating accessible justice through her work at the University of Toronto’s Legal Aid Clinic, Downtown Legal Services. She will explain how poverty impacts the clients they work with, what the legal needs facing this population are, the resources that are available for people who cannot afford to pay for legal representation, and the challenges they face in doing this work. She will also discuss how social workers can best serve clients who live in poverty and are confronting legal issues of their own.
