LEARN ABOUT OUR EXPERT SPEAKER
David Searle, Lawyer
David Searle has been a lawyer at the Centre de justice de proximité du Grand Montréal (CJPGM) since he was sworn in in 2018. He meets the public on a daily basis in many areas of law, with a particular emphasis on housing and consumer protection law.
The Centre de justice de proximité du Grand Montréal is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote access to justice by fostering the participation of citizens through legal information, support and referral services provided in addition to existing resources.
In his work, David demonstrates a strong commitment to legal education. Every month, he offers a free virtual information session in collaboration with Judge Philippe Morisset of the Tribunal administratif du logement (TAL) to help litigants prepare for their cases before the TAL. In 2022, to his great delight, he also became a lecturer in housing law at the Université du Québec à Montréal. He recently launched Justice décodée, a website highlighting student research in housing law.
