Latest legal aid law review gets underway
Professor John McCamus, after bringing himself up to speed since last fall, is gearing up for a review of Legal Aid Ontario nearly 10 years after his first look into the system.
McCamus told the annual plenary of the County and District Law Presidents’ Association in Toronto recently that he has already sent out letters to interested parties as part of the review, inviting submissions by the end of June on what issues he should focus on and what, in their view, is working or not working with the current system.

He has also already had a preliminary meeting with Legal Aid Ontario, which he says will be the first of many.
“We hope to have a broad consultation process as we go through the piece,” he says.
