The cost of legal services now places lawyers out-of-reach for the majority of the public in Canada, the US, and the UK.  Australia faces a similar access to justice crisis. The legal profession is at a crossroads where their role as the predominant providers of personal legal services is being questioned across the common law world. What can the profession do to confront and respond to this crisis, and what does it mean for the next generation of legal practitioners?  In this seminar, we will discuss the sources and consequences of this crisis and suggest the systemic and practical steps necessary to confront it.
