Posted to the Internet Archive

This week’s show featured an interview with three students in the Queen’s Faculty of Law who are part of Pro Bono Students Canada, a volunteer program offering pro bono legal services to various organizations. Priya Patel, Jeremy, Ambraska, and Amita Persad-Ford are currently working with PASAN on a research project on class action lawsuits. Their research will help to inform prisoners about what class action lawsuits are, and what class actions they may be able to join, and will be circulated in PASAN’s Cell Count prison newsletter.

This show also featured Part 2 of the Canadaland Commons 2-part series on Solitary Confinement, “Stories from Solitude“.
