We are excited to share with you that Access Pro Bono’s new BC-wide and first-of-its-kind public interest law incubator, the Everyone Legal Clinic, will be launching next week. In support of this pilot program, Harper Grey has donated $20,000 and joins this unique and innovative initiative as one of the Founding Sponsors.
The first cohort of 15 articling students begins their six-month intensive learning semester from twelve different BC communities on May 16 with the second cohort of 10 articling students joining the Clinic this September. Overall, the 25 articling students are a very diverse bunch – 75% BIPOC, 25% Indigenous.
You can learn more about the Everyone Legal Clinic and its innovative model here.
The Clinic still has some sponsorship and support opportunities available. Consider joining one of the many firms supporting this initiative. Details can be found here.
