Information for students.
Students working at the clinic are supervised by a staff lawyer from the Industrial Accidents Victims Group of Ontario, but have full responsibility for files including the preparation and presentation of appeals before the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal. Students have the opportunity to handle a variety of casework, to engage in medico-legal research, and to represent injured workers at all levels of appeal. Cases include Workplace Safety and Insurance claims, and related Canada Pension Plan claims, as well as human rights and civil matters.
First year students can volunteer at the clinic, and upper year students can enroll in the Clinic for Credit programme for academic credit. The clinic holds training seminars specifically geared for newcomers as well as social events to celebrate our work together. Some students opt to continue their commitment year round, in the form of summer employment and extra academic credit.
