A collaborative pursuit of justice

Nexus/Spring 2022

Fifty years ago, a group of idealistic students organized to provide desperately needed legal services to impoverished Torontonians. Their courageous work laid the foundation for what has grown to become Downtown Legal Services (DLS), the Faculty of Law’s leading public interest clinic for low-income clients. That original spirit of improving access to justice carries on with the students who step into DLS today.
