Dissertation Title
Access to Meaningful Civil Justice: An Empirical Study of the Lived Experiences of Low-And-Modest-Income Racialized Peoples Navigating Canada's Civil Justice System

I am an access to civil justice advocate, a doctoral student of law at Osgooge Hall Law School, and a teaching assist in the Law and Society program at York University.


My dissertation is an empirical study of the lived experiences of low-and-modest income racialized peoples navigating Canada's civil justice system to address their everyday civil legal problems, and I also examine the effectiveness of public legal education and information in helping them gain meaningful access to civil justice.
