About PATH's Services
If a matter falls within the mandate of PATH, we can assist with bail release plans, parole board support, police complaints, human right complaints, habeas corpus applications, judicial review applications, restorative justice initiatives, correctional disciplinary hearings, civil claims, and more. In select circumstances, PATH will offer to collaborate with and support community partners and lawyers with client matters.
Should a matter fall outside the mandate of PATH, we will, when possible, refer clients to other resources in the community.
In addition to services offered to clients, PATH holds a prominent presence in the legal community. You will often see our President and Co-Director, Emma Halpern, and other staff speaking at community events, doing media appearances, and mentoring law students and young lawyers.
