Access to Justice: Funding Charter Challenges

I am moderating a panel on access to justice and ethics for the Asper Centre this Friday, April 1, 2011 in the Bennett Lecture Hall at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law. 

From the flyer:

Legal experts in practice and the academy provide information and commentary on the availability of funding for some of the most significant litigation in the country. How can you obtain advanced costs? Are class actions feasible in Charter claims? What are the reasonable and ethical limits of pro bono? Does the legal aid system adequately fund complex cases?
