Precedent magazine and LAO lawyer speak out on overrepresentation of Aboriginal people in prisons
An insightful story, How Aboriginal lawyers are fixing the mess Canada made, recently ran in Precedent magazine.
It featured the moving perspective of LAO’s Aboriginal Justice Strategy Policy Counsel Fallon Melander, along with the views of two other Aboriginal lawyers. Fallon’s motivation in going to law school, she says in this story, was to work for her people.
She and the other two lawyers featured in this story are doing just that.
