LAWS was featured in the February 28, 2008 issue of the Globe and Mail.  The article highlightes the exceptional work of law student volunteers and the immediate and long-term benefits of volunteering for the program.  The story quotes LAWS director Alexis Archbold,

The [law] students’ work involves a hugely diverse community that faces a variety of issues,” says Alexis Archbold, director of the LAWS program. “As a result of being exposed to a cross-section of the community in Toronto … they learn how to communicate across cultural differences and they gain an understanding of the issues these communities face. This can only help law students as future lawyers.”
