Answer

Lawyers can give legal advice. When you get legal advice, a lawyer explains what the law says and how it applies to your situation.

Even if you can't afford a lawyer, it's important to try to get legal information. Legal information can help you understand your legal rights, how the legal process works, and how to get more help.

You may be able to get legal information and help from:

  • Duty counsel on the days you have to go to court
  • Legal Aid Ontario  
  • Student Legal Aid Services Society
