MLT Helping to Improve Access to Justice

This post was written prior to our January 2017 merger, under our previous firm name, MacPherson Leslie & Tyerman LLP.

On March 11, 2015, Dana Nowak appeared before the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench as its first amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) for the Court’s Amicus Project in Edmonton. The project focuses on Court of Queen’s Bench civil matters and has now entered its 12-week pilot phase. The goal of the project is to assist self-represented people and the Court, both substantively and procedurally, when such people appear in Court. MLT is one of five law firms in Edmonton supporting this project with the assistance of Dana Nowak, who will all act as amicus during the pilot.
