Lenczner Slaght provides pro bono assistance to the RLO.

January 18, 2012 (Toronto)

The law firm will be providing pro bono assistance to the RLO in two key areas: • conducting detention hearings in jails and at the Toronto Immigration Holding Centre, before members of the Immigration and Refugee Board; and • bringing applications to stay removal orders, on an emergency basis, in the Federal Court. By working together, we can significantly expand the availability of legal services to refugees. Lenczner Slaght's lawyers and students, with their trademark advocacy skills, look forward to collaborating with the RLO team.
