Specialty clinics

Specialty clinics:

  • represent specific individuals (e.g., seniors, people living with HIV/AIDS)
  • deal with specific area of law
  • service clients throughout Ontario.

Some clinics also specialize in areas of law for low‑income clients who are marginalized for other reasons. These clinics are resources for other clinics, private bar lawyers, MPPs and community agencies.

Specialty clinics usually do not charge, but they may ask you to pay court filing or medical record fees.

Legal Aid Ontario also funds 59 general legal clinics throughout the province as well as seven Student Legal Aid Services Societies (SLASS) which operate out of Ontario’s law schools.
