What is success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose.

This is the ID Project.
Possessing valid or government issued photo identification is a necessity of modern day life.  Although losing identification documents is only an inconvenience for some, for others this loss can mean being denied access to vital services.
.
Without official identification many people cannot access the majority of the vital community services and programs available. .
It is important to know not everyone who seeks help through the ID Project is homeless or marginally housed but many have been at some point in their lives.
.
Every month, Pro Bono lawyers and law students will be holding duty hours for the ID Clinic & Legal Referral Services Duty Hours within the LLFH hospitality meal service at St. Paul’s Cathedral located at 472 Richmond Street. They will interview individuals, assess their legal issues, and help them complete applications to replace missing birth certificates, Ontario Photo Cards and Social Insurance Number certificates.
.
Interested in this project? Apply by September 19th!

Today is a special edition of WesternWednesdays !! We want to introduce you to someone who runs an amazing program at Western law outside of PBSC.
.
This is Anna, who is the Dispute Resolution Centre Student Coordinator.
.
Although the DRC is not a PBSC project, it is a clinic that allows law students to gain valuable mediation and negotiation skills relevant to every area of law.
.
This year the DRC is looking for 8 upper year interns and 2 first year associate interns. Training sessions are weekly. Students will be exposed to real mediation opportunities, 810 Peace Bond Court, and PLE Workshops.
.
Random facts about Anna: She is the eldest of six kids. She is originally from Vancouver. She took a gap year during her undergrad (in English Lit and Psychology) to explore a career in singing and songwriting. She likes photographing people’s faces, and doodling in the margins. She can’t believe she was accepted into law school and now tries to stay as active as possible within the community. .
Ask her about: headshots, Yearbook Committee, Obiter Dicta, Litigation Practice, Community Legal Services (CLS), and the Student Legal Society (SLS).
.
If you are interested, apply by Sept 14th at 4:00PM! And feel free to reach out to Anna if you have more questions!

In May 2016, the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council appointed Professor Michael Lynk as Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian Territories occupied since 1967, UN Special Rapporteurs act independently of governments and the United Nations and are mandated to examine, monitor, advice and publicly report on human rights violations.
.
The student will be expected to conduct research on international human rights and humanitarian law and its application with respect to the Middle East conflict. The student’s work will assist Professor Michael Lynk in producing informative and high-quality reports for the United Nations Human Rights Council and the United Nations General Assembly.

Welcome to our second #pbscwesternprojectshowcase post!
.
Pro Bono Ontario (PBO) at Children’s Hospital is a medical-legal partnership created to help low-income families resolve legal problems that may prevent them from focusing their full attention on caring for a sick child.
.
The students will assist families that are sent to the Pediatric Family Resource Centre by the hospital social workers and staff to complete government forms for their children who suffer from chronic or critical illnesses. When the students are not assisting families, they will be completing small projects such as memos on new legislation, and pamphlets with resources for families.
.
