The Family Justice Centre (FJC) has evolved into an in-house family law clinic that delivers both summary legal advice and court form drafting services virtually through a suite of technologies managed by the Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC) National Office located at the University of Toronto. PBSC National engages student caseworkers to staff this program, and those students work on client files with a roster of volunteer lawyers and the Supervising Lawyer, (FJC).
Under the direction of PBSC’s National Director, the Supervising Lawyer (FJC) holds diverse responsibilities within the FJC including, but not limited to, overseeing the intake of clients, overseeing the development of public legal education resources, answering students’ legal questions, developing legal policies for the program, providing training on substantive and procedural law to the students, managing the program’s partnerships and leading continued program development.
The incumbent is required to be an insured lawyer with the expertise and professional liability coverage to advise students on legal issues and communicate with clients directly, when required.
As a senior member of PBSC, the incumbent will also provide support to the National Director in the areas of stakeholder relations, strategic planning, fundraising, budgeting, along with other leadership functions.
