The Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic offers legal services and representation, trauma-informed counselling and multilingual interpretation to diverse women who have experienced violence. We cultivate women’s skills and resilience by fostering their safety, dignity and equality and we amplify women’s voices to create individual and collective change. The umbrella term “woman” recognizes that gender is self-identification that is not necessarily correspondent with assigned sex at birth. We recognize the complexity and diversity of gender and aim to be inclusive to people outside of and across the gender spectrum.
The Schlifer Clinic offers a number of different student education programs in Toronto and across the country. Volunteer and placement opportunities exist through the academic year and over the summer. More information on these programs and opportunities can be found below.
