WHO WE ARE
Community Legal Aid is a joint project of the University of Windsor, Faculty of Law and Legal Aid Ontario. We provide legal services for low-income residents of Windsor-Essex county or full-time University of Windsor undergraduate students. Our clinic serves as a learning environment for law students to build their advocacy and litigation skills, while providing necessary legal services to our community.
We represent our clients in legal matters in the following areas; criminal law, family law, landlord and tenant and small claims court matters. Each case must meet our financial eligibility criteria. Every case is different. We will assess the merits of your case and set out a strategic plan for your matter. CLA may offer summary legal information, negotiate on your behalf with the other side or represent you at court or before a tribunal.
CLA also participates in community outreach programs. Our lawyers and law students conduct legal information sessions within the community. For more information regarding our upcoming information sessions or to request a session at your agency please contact us.
