Kingston Family Law Practice

Posted By Administration, July 9, 2018

Je suis présentement dans ma 35ième année de pratique. Je suis à la recherche d’un(e) avocat(e) francophone ou bilingue pour prendre la relève de mon cabinet juridique à Kingston. Mon bureau fonctionne en français et fournit des services dans les deux langues officielles. Environ 30% de ma clientèle est francophone dont la plupart sont militaires. Je limite ma pratique au Droit de la famille et aux Testaments et successions. Je suis appuyé de façon très compétente par mon assistante. Elle possède une vaste expérience du Droit de la famille ainsi que des connaissances en traduction. Elle va continuer à travailler pour au moins les quatre prochaines années. Je n’ai aucun besoin de faire de la publicité. J’ai plus de références que je peux gérer soit par bouche à oreille, références provenant de collègues et de la clinique juridique que j’ai fondée. En ce moment, j’accepte environ seulement 33% des gens qui communique avec nous et je renvois le reste à d’autres avocats. Mon cabinet est situé au centre-ville de Kingston à environ trois pâtés de maison du Lac Ontario. Le bureau est vaste et attrayant, et, le loyer est modeste. C’est une opération clés en main.

Je suis prêt à faciliter la transition au cours de la prochaine année ou deux pendant que je transitionne moi-même à faire seulement du travail de tribunal. Il y a environ 30 avocats en Droit de la famille dans la région. Ils sont généralement tout à fait agréables et ouverts aux nouveaux arrivants. La région de Kingston est bien servie par une Cour unifiée de la famille ainsi que trois juges locaux à temps plein. Tous les termes sont flexibles et négociables.

Youth Police Dialogues

Posted By Administration, June 12, 2018
Background

OJEN’s Youth-Police Dialogue (YPD) program offers youth a safe, inclusive space to
share their perspectives about their neighbourhood and issues that cause conflict
between youth and police. OJEN will create a safe space for youth and those who work in the justice system to engage in open and meaningful dialogue, and learn from each other; building youth’s legal capability to better navigate the justice system.

Program Overview

OJEN’s YPD is a facilitated program, that takes place over six sessions. Youth meet
with local police officers, lawyers and a YPD facilitator to build their legal capability and enhance their communication and advocacy skills. Youth and police learn together and gain new perspectives through role plays and other activities. The project provides the opportunity for roundtable discussion between youth, police officers and lawyers, where all sides work to come up with solutions to issues faced by the community, while addressing community safety as a shared goal.

Location

YPD programs are hosted by community organizations who offer youth-focused
programming. Four programs will run over the summer of 2018 with the following
neighborhoods in Ottawa:
(1) Michele Heights Community
(2) Rideau Rockcliffe- Vanier
(3) Carlington
(4) Hunt Club

Participants

There will be approximately 10 to 30 youth, between the ages of 12 and 18 years,
attending each program. Police participants will be recruited from Ottawa Police
Services.

We Need You!

The YPD program is designed to elevate youth participants’ voice and increase their
comfort interacting with members of the justice system. Lawyer volunteers will act as
coaches, guiding youth through interactive role-plays and scenario-based activities.
Overall, you will help elevate youth voice, build knowledge, develop skills, and
challenge perceptions.

The youth develop communication and advocacy skills, and learn to frame their ideas
and concerns in a way which allows for a respectful exchange of perspectives while
building legal capability. Conversely, Justice Sector Volunteer’s learn from youths lived experiences and increase their understanding of the communities they serve.

This is a great opportunity for you to assist OJEN in challenging existing perceptions. All stakeholders will benefit from the sharing of information and strengthen relationships between the justice sector and the community.

Get Involved!

To learn more about the YPD program contact OJEN Project Officer, Tina Yousif at
tyousif@ojen.ca or 416-761-9963 EXT: 255.
