No. The Clinic offers a one-on-one appointment with a lawyer, sometimes two lawyers, to get free legal advice on your situation. This is held in a confidential, private setting, in which you are given 45 minutes for your appointment to ask legal questions and get advice from experts.
The Clinic is by appointment only. There is a process in which you provide your information and describe your legal issue on an Intake Form for the lawyers at Miller Thomson to process. This process has to be completed prior to your appointment. Everything is kept confidential.
To book an appointment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief description of your legal issue in order for us to determine whether your issue is within the scope of the clinic. If you have a legal concern that we can assist with, you will be asked to complete an Intake Form.
Please carefully read the acknowledgment part as you will be asked to sign it upon arrival on the day of your appointment. You are not required to sign and scan this Form in advance, but please email back the completed Form in .doc format. Please type out your information electronically on the Intake Form and email it back to email@example.com within at least 3 days of the scheduled clinic to allow enough time for processing.
Please bring any document that is relevant to your issue and that may assist the lawyers in providing any advice. This may include a contract that you have signed or are creating, an outline of your business plan, an original document or application if you need assistance with notarizing a document.
All documentation is kept entirely confidential.
If someone else is highly involved in the legal matter or is your business partner, and a current Ryerson student, we may be able to allow both of you to be in the appointment. However, this request must be specified in your Intake Form and approval will be given on a case-by-case basis.
An opposing party will not be allowed in the meeting with you on the day of your appointment.
To gain access to the Clinic, you are required to be a current Ryerson student or a member of Ryerson learning zones. If you have misplaced your student card, or identification, you must provide sufficient documentation on the day of the appointment.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to notify the coordinator in advance, and please print off your current timetable with a visible student number shown on the document from RAMMS.
Yes. While you are a Ryerson student, or a member of Ryerson learning zones, the service is provided for you to use as often as you need. You must always fill out an Intake Form and email it to email@example.com to book your appointment.
