Law Talk Archive

Law Talk is a series of legal information columns written by students at the University of Western Ontario Faculty of Law who volunteer in the Community Legal Services and Pro Bono Students Canada programs under the supervision of Faculty Advisor (and Community Law School's Legal Education Coordinator) Margaret Capes. These columns originally appeared in the student newspapers at Western and at Fanshawe College. Given the timeliness of the topics, we thought that they may be of interest and assistance to our Community Law School readers.
