Just a Click Away Conference, Feb. 23 & 24, 2011

The Just a Click Away Conference is taking place this Wednesday and Thursday, February 23 and 24, 2011. Funded by the Law Foundation of Ontario’s Access to Justice Fund, Just a Click Away is an initiative to enhance how technology can be used to deliver legal education and information to the public in Canada.

Clicklaw is part of a breakout session at the conference, “Portals and Other Models for Online Public Legal Education: What Are the Next Steps?”. The session builds off of a series of preconference webinars exploring models used to provide access online to public legal education and information. This video recap of the webinars features five portal websites, including Clicklaw, as well as one content-rich site in different jurisdictions across Canada and the US.
