(Bragging disclaimer) We've had an incredible year

2019-20 Annual Report cover excerpt

September 25, 2020

We've just released our annual report for 2019-20It's been an outstanding year for People's Law School. Traffic to our digital platforms increased by more than half. We delivered our first ever webinars for the public, averaging over 200 attendees per session. And our Q&A service — which provides personalized responses to your legal questions — saw a 53% uptick. Check out these (real-life!) testimonials.

So how did we do it? New content, and new content delivery. (Oh, and our incredible team, of course!)

We saw gaps in the free legal information available to British Columbians. So we acted. We added help on dealing with problems at workbuying a new home, and planning for your future care (among other topics).

We also debuted Beagle, our virtual assistant. It took months of planning, writing, re-writing and coding (TangoworkAgentic — we couldn't have done it without you) to train this pup. And we're so pleased with the results, not to mention being at the forefront of digital innovation in the legal sector.

Ask Beagle a question — at home or on the go, 24/7 — by clicking on the message icon in the bottom right corner at peopleslawschool.ca or dialalaw.ca, or by messaging Beagle on Facebook.

More than ever before, People's Law School is helping British Columbians take the next steps in solving their legal problems. Check out our annual report to learn more. And spread the word!
