Nova Scotia Legal Aid: Support staff community outreach

June 27, 2016 – Nova Scotia Legal Aid is reaching out into communities with client-centered initiatives to improve access to justice for more Nova Scotians. This outreach includes support staff taking a leading role in proactive early intervention initiatives with a goal to connecting better with our communities and putting into motion the old adage that ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’.
