Pro Bono Publico: For the Public Good
"The existence of PBSC has helped rekindle a sense of obligation in students and lawyers alike. The graduates of PBSC enter the profession as agents for change, with a new level of expectation regarding the role of public service in a legal career.”
–Justice Robert Armstrong,
Ontario Court of Appeal
