“The more litigants understand about the trial process, the closer we come to access to justice.”
Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin, P.C., in a letter to Denice Barrie,
My book, Journey to Justice: A Practical Guide to Effectively Representing Yourself in Court was an answer to the call for action made by the Chief Justice of Canada, Beverley McLachlin. At a conference held in Vancouver several years ago, she said “(i)f we are serious about preserving the rule of law, we must find long term solutions to the access problem.”
The Waymark model (guidebook, workshops and one-on-one coaching) sprung from these words.
Chief Justice McLachlin received a copy of my book after it was published and I’m happy to be able to share a letter from Chief Justice congratulating me on this accomplishment.
