Stories from The Justice System
Details: Join us for an evening of true stories told live on stage by people working in or with the legal system. Stories of human experiences intersecting with the sometimes rigid and logical world of the law, told by individuals who have worked to build a better system and improve the relationship between Canadians and the legal system.
The Action Group on Access to Justice (TAG) is catalyzing solutions to Ontario’s access to justice challenges by facilitating collaboration with institutional, political and community stakeholders. TAG is guided by a group of senior thought leaders from across the justice system. It is funded by the Law Foundation of Ontario with support from the Law Society of Upper Canada.
Raconteurs is a monthly event series featuring true, personal storytelling live on stage without notes or props. Each event features a theme — a jumping off point to give the evening’s stories a common thread. Stories shared can be funny, poignant, exciting, and moving. Everyone can be a storyteller — because everyone has a story!
