Lawyers (F)or Justice is an exploration of the contemporary viability of socially conscious law in Ontario. It follows lawyer and director, Yavar Hameed, in his journey to understand the relationship between law and justice from the perspective of social activists, established socially conscious lawyers, and law students. Within the deepening crisis of access to justice in Ontario, this film considers whether recent law school graduates, faced with rising levels of tuition and debt, can afford to practice socially conscious law. Can emerging lawyers break their financial chains while staying true to their ideological principles?
