Torys Celebrates the Achievements of the Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic

May 09, 2016

As a longstanding supporter of the Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic, Torys is pleased to host a breakfast on May 19 to celebrate the transformative work of the Clinic. The event will feature last year’s recipient of the Spirit of Barbra Schlifer Award, Deepa Mattoo; Executive Director, Amanda Dale; and interim Legal Director, Joanna Birenbaum.

The Clinic is a unique Canadian organization that offers counselling in a variety of innovative formats, interpretation in more than 200 languages, and integrated legal representation and advice in the three areas of law—family, immigration and criminal—which are most requested by the women it serves. The Clinic’s diverse, skilled and compassionate staff accompany women through personal and practical transformations, helping them to build lives free from violence.
