Justice Education Speakers Centre

Speakers are an effective way to boost interest and encourage learning about the justice system.

Through a unique partnership between Alberta Justice and the Alberta Branch of the Canadian Bar Association teachers and community organizations can now invite justice professionals such as lawyers, Crown prosecutors, and judges to speak with their students or at a community event through an easy one-step process.

Specific justice-related topics include:

  • The Charter of Rights and Freedoms
  • What is involved in prosecuting a criminal case
  • Cyber crime and Internet safety
  • Being a judge
  • Family law in Alberta
  • The Youth Criminal Justice Act and you
  • What’s the role of the defence lawyer

Speakers are also available to talk about many other justice-related topics and areas of law such as Aboriginal, civil, constitutional, criminal, corrections and probation, courts, environmental, family, maintenance enforcement, medical examiner, policing and security, public trustee, victims services and young offenders.

The Justice Education Speakers Centre is supported by the judiciary and the Law Society of Alberta. It is designed in line with educational activities that support the Alberta Education Social Studies Curriculum, and developed with the assistance of the Alberta Branch of the Canadian Bar Association and the Canadian Forum on Civil Justice.
