Chat with the Chiefs and an SRL! #A2JChatBC

Join the Chief Justice and Chief Judge of BC and a former self-represented litigant in a live Twitter Town Hall about the progress, opportunities and challenges in the Access to Justice (A2J) movement on Monday, October 28, 2019 from noon to 2:00 pm!

It’s a unique opportunity for law students, lawyers and others interested in access to justice to participate in a live discussion with Chief Justice Bauman, Chief Judge Gillespie and former self-represented litigant Jennifer Muller by using the hashtag #A2JChatBC on Twitter.

They want to hear about:

  • the progress you’re seeing - What’s working? Where do you see change happening? What have you done that’s making a difference? What have you tried that you’ve learned from?
  • the opportunities the A2J movement offers – What doors has it opened for you? How has innovation improved your practice – or your satisfaction? How are you using legal tech to improve access to justice? And how would you like to use it?
  • the challenges you face when trying to improve access to justice - What’s getting in your way? What could make it easier? How have you overcome an obstacle?

As members of Access To Justice BC (A2JBC), the Chiefs and Ms. Muller are particularly interested in hearing about ideas and experiences that are collaborative, user-focused, experimental and evidence-based, the approach adopted by Access to Justice BC to justice system reform. And they’ll share with you their observations of changes underway and what more needs to be done.

Spread the word! Join us for the BC Provincial Court’s Access to Justice Twitter Town Hall! If you’re not available on October 28, tweet #A2JChatBC or email beforehand.
