Abstract

There is a need to provide legal assistance to persons who suffer with serious mental illness for legal problems over and above problems associated with mental illness. This paper describes a single-case study of the development and introduction of a pilot of a hospital-based, legal service, in partnership with The University of Western Ontario Faculty of Law. The data sources included direct observation and documentation. Law students provide legal services reflecting the application of a therapeutic jurisprudence approach. Interprofessional education and training occurs with law, medical, nursing and other students, and professionals on the principles and scholarship of therapeutic jurisprudence, mental illness and legal rights. A programmatic organizational template, the program logic model, was used to conceptualize the activities, and process, short-term, long-term and ultimate objectives, and indicators. The four core activities were: (1) patient access point to law students; (2) supervision of law students at the London Health Sciences Centre; (3) intake and access to other services, and (4) teaching and additional training of law and other students, physicians and other health caregivers. The development, issues and challenges of the introduction of an in-patient student law service is described.
