Expanding Access to Legal Services in Alberta through E-Learning

April 19, 2013

Athabasca University Professors Ally, Dewhurst and Zariski have recently completed a research study of unmet demand for legal services in Northern Alberta with funding assistance from the Alberta Law Foundation. The report, "Expanding Access to Legal Services in Alberta through E-Learning" (PDF - 2MB) is now available to the public. The report discusses recommendations to the Alberta Law Foundation based upon three objectives: (1) a needs assessment of unmet demand for legal services in rural, remote and Aboriginal communities in Northern Alberta; (2) identification of the information and communication technology infrastructure available to assist with delivering such services and the capabilities and interest of Northern Albertans to use the available infrastructure; and (3) how unmet demand can be responded to through targeted legal education and legal service delivery, particularly through e-learning.
