How we can help legal clinics

April 6, 2023

Are you a lawyer who volunteers low-cost or free legal services outside of your area of expertise? Are you a law student getting experience working at a legal clinic in BC? It's tricky to give good legal information on a topic you're not familiar with. That's where People's Law School can help.

We recently presented to lawyers and articling students working with Access Pro Bono, showing them information resources that can give them a boost in their work with the public. We learned from our webinar participants that providing quality, helpful information at a legal clinic can be challenging, especially during a short consultation. So we showcased the People's Law toolkit: plain language pages on legal topics, document builders, infographics, videos, and roadmaps for how folks can take the next step on their own.

We are grateful to work on the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, whose Peoples continue to live on and care for these lands.
