Queen’s Prison Law Clinic (QPLC)


The Queen's Prison Law Clinic provides legal advice, assistance, and representation in matters relating to prison and parole in Kingston-area penitentiaries and Warkworth Institution.

Legal services are provided to clients by students under the supervision of the clinic's lawyers, as part of their legal education. Students learn to manage the solicitor/client relationship, interview clients, conduct case-specific research, prepare examinations/cross-examinations of witnesses, draft legal submissions, and represent clients at hearings.

The Queen's Prison Law Clinic is funded by Legal Aid Ontario.
