Pro bono work matters and it matters to us. We are proud and privileged to serve as the exclusive Title Sponsor for the sixth consecutive year of Access Pro Bono’s annual Going Public Event.
Held from September 14 – 25 from 9AM – 5PM daily, the event is based on pre-booked one hour BC-wide telephone advice clinics connecting community minded lawyers with those in need of free legal services across the province. You may not be advising clients outdoors as in previous years, but you will be providing much-needed help from the comfort of your desk!
You can register as a volunteer lawyer here.
Upon registering, you will be able to choose your preferred day and one-hour telephone shift for advising one or two clients. Register soon to get your preferred date and time. They will match clients’ legal issues to your areas of legal expertise, and facilitate a thorough conflict check for each client matter.
We urge you to consider participating in this year’s Legal Advice-A-Thon to help raise much needed funds for Access Pro Bono’s vital programs and to provide assistance to low- to -modest-income people, many of whom have been seriously impacted by the pandemic.
