Check out this very interesting development that a good friend of mine started, Access to Justice, which de-constructs the accessibility of law school in Canada, particularly in Ontario.

I think it is especially relevant for this blog as non-profit work is not limited to front-line workers. There is a huge need for accessible lawyers for all of us to be able to be fairly and equitably represented, not to mention the huge social justice work that is needed on a policy (read: law-based) level.
Law has some serious class and privilege inherent in not only entry, but admissions, tuition and future career choices. I totally echo these sentiments for medicine, and hopefully sometime soon I’ll have more time to get into my personal views on medicine and class. In the mean time, check out this great work, and if you are in law school or a lawyer yourself please get involved!
