Catch 22: No Capacity, No LawyerNSRLP
Julie talks to self-represented litigant Judy Gayton about her years of struggling through the justice system with a cognitive disability. Judy’s story is representative of the many people contacting the NSRLP who face the double whammy of navigating the legal system by themselves, on top of a disability. In other news: another great piece from Gillian Hadfield, and career changes from two of Ontario’s top justice leaders.
