The Class Action Clinic at Windsor Law is the first clinic of its kind in North America. Our focus is on class members – people who are part of a large civil lawsuit launched on their behalf by representative plaintiffs and class counsel. The Clinic is staffed with a team of law students, review counsel and a faculty director who provide a range of legal services, information, assistance with filing claims in settlement distribution processes, public education and outreach. Because we serve class members across Canada, the Clinic provides its services online, by telephone and by video conference, as well as in person for those in the Windsor–Essex community.
Launched in October 2019, the clinic announcement was featured on the University of Windsor’s Daily News, CBC Radio-Canada, Law Times, The Lawyer’s Daily, AM800, Blackburn News, Windsor Star and Lerners.ca.
The Class Action Clinic has received start-up funding from The Law Foundation of Ontario.
