Clinic communiqués go online at Commmunitylegalclinic.ca

The Community Legal Clinic - Simcoe, Haliburton, Kawartha Lakes is launching an enhanced communications program. All Clinic news, updates, and communiqués will be published on Communitylegalclinic.ca. This website will replace all past newsletters and e-bulletins. This change makes Communitylegalclinic.ca. the site to visit for public information about the Community Legal Clinic and its activities.

New content of interest to targeted audiences will be published along with electronic alerts, linking readers to the website. Plans are underway to experiment with several ways to notify readers about new articles of interest to them. These will include networks such as the Clinic's email lists, CLEO's YourLegalRights.ca news service and LAO's Clinic Resource Office listserves. Trials are planned using digital meda like RSS and Twitter.

Articles will be archived on the website to provide users with a current and chronological summary of topics. Previous news items will be added to the archive, but this project is primarily concerned with new events and stories. To assist users, each post will be tagged with the subject matter of the articles. The tags will be:

  • NEWS - Notable events involving the Clinic or its mission
  • UPDATE - Brief report on Clinic operations or project work
  • FEATURE - Focus on an issue, event, team, person or project
  • ANALYSIS - Ideas, discussion or commentary on a specific topic
  • REPORTS - Clinic or partner publications of widespread interest


Community partners and clients will be able to access public legal information, self-help tools, and online applications for assistance at Communitylegalclinic.com.
