Driven by the desire to assist people with legal difficulties and convinced that law and justice enable individuals to improve their social and economic conditions, Geeta Narang, now a Superior Court judge, founded the Mile End Legal Clinic in 2002.
The beginning at
Following her call to the Bar in 2002, Geeta Narang decided to offer free legal consultations. After establishing a partnership with the Mile End Community Mission, she set up a table with chairs every Wednesday to offer her services and legal expertise.
The Mile End Legal Clinic became a non-profit organization.
The Mile End Legal Clinic was granted registered charity status. In that same year Geeta Narang received the Lawyer of the Year Award in the “Pro Bono/Social Involvement” category from the Young Bar Association of Montreal at the “Leaders of Tomorrow” gala.
Geeta Narang was awarded the Médaille Saint-Yves (now the Justice Pro Bono Award) by Pro Bono Québec. This award recognizes the exceptional contribution of a lawyer to pro bono legal services in Quebec.
Geeta Narang was awarded the Diamond Jubilee Medal in recognition of her leadership and pro bono legal work through the Mile End Legal Clinic. The organization hired its first full-time Executive Director.
