OCT 22/15 A recent Globe and Mail article about choosing Canadian universities in the prairies mentions CLASSIC as a notable part of the University of Saskatchewan and Saskatoon community, and one of the reasons why people should study here! Link to the article.
CLASSIC (COMMUNITY LEGAL ASSISTANCE SERVICES FOR SASKATOON INNER CITY INC.) provides free, professional and confidential legal services for low-income members of our community who otherwise cannot afford legal advice or representation. As a free student-run law clinic operating in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, CLASSIC has been continuously providing service to the community since February 2007. We also work with other community organization through mutual referrals so that clients' legal and non-legal issues are appropriately addressed.
VISION: CLASSIC works toward a just society that is supported by a fair legal system.
MISSION STATEMENT CLASSIC works toward social justice with low-income, marginalized Saskatchewan residents, with a commitment to Indigenous peoples, through a legal clinic that is guided by the needs of the community. This engages law and inter-disciplinary students through experiential learning, providing insights into the cultural and social reality of law and fosters an ethic of social justice.
Thank you to our donors for their generous support!
