Harper Grey continues to support Access Pro Bono as Title Sponsor of ‘Going Public’ 2017

Harper Grey is proud to be the Title Sponsor of Access Pro Bono’s ‘Going Public’ event for the fourth consecutive year. The outdoor “legal advice-a-thon” is held over five days – one day in each of Vancouver, Surrey, Victoria, Kelowna and Kamloops – and facilitates access to justice for low- and modest-income people by engaging volunteer lawyers in advising pre-scheduled and drop-in clients on a wide range of legal issues. This year’s event is especially exciting as it marks the 10th anniversary of the ‘Going Public’ event. New this year is the BC-Wide Telephone Clinic that will be hosted on September 19. The addition of a telephone clinic will allow volunteers to reach even more people in need of legal advice across the province.

The “legal advice-a-thon” calls significant media attention to the legal community’s efforts to increase access to justice, while serving the public and raising much-needed funds for BC’s pro bono programs. This event offers our firm another rewarding opportunity to make a difference through supporting BC’s pro bono programs and actively participating in providing free legal advice to those who may not otherwise have access to justice.

The Vancouver Free Legal Advice-A-Thon will be held at Victoria Square Park on September 8, 2016 from 10:00AM to 5:00PM.
