This week, Julie talks to her colleague, Dr. Laverne Jacobs, Professor in the Faculty of Law at the University of Windsor, and Director of the Law, Disabilities and Social Change Project (LDSC). Laverne describes her most recent work, pressing the UN Special Rapporteur on two particularly egregious cases involving litigants left without legal representation, despite disability challenges making representing themselves even more difficult. NSRLP has worked with Laverne on these cases, one of which was featured in a podcast in our very first season (“Catch 22: No Capacity, No Lawyer” with Judy Gayton). Laverne also talks about her personal and professional passion for working on disability rights issues. She has been honoured for her activism a number of times, most recently with the Outstanding Individual Award in the annual Windsor-Essex Accessibility Awards. In other news: the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls recently released its final report; the Faculty of Law at the University of Manitoba will now offer French language legal education for law students in the form of a full certificate program; finally, NSRLP last week published another article on, examining the way restrictions have been imposed on self-represented litigants, and arguing that more restrictions will only escalate legal problems further.
