Harper Grey lawyers take part in Access Pro Bono’s 2015 “Free Legal Advice-A-Thon Going Public”

Harper Grey is committed to making a positive and lasting difference in the communities in which we live and work. We are pleased to sponsor Access Pro Bono’s “Advice-A-Thon Going Public” event as the title sponsor for the second year. In further support of the APB’s initiative to provide access to justice for low- and modest-income people and raise funds to secure legal aid for those with limited means, a team of seven Harper Grey lawyers have volunteered their time to participate in the Surrey and Vancouver clinics. The Surrey event will be held this year on September 9 at the Surrey City Hall from 10am to 2pm, while the Vancouver event will take place at Victory Square Park on September 11 from 10am to 5pm.

Access Pro Bono’s annual “Free Legal Advice-A-Thon Going Public” event facilitates access to justice for low- and modest-income people by engaging volunteer lawyers in advising pre-scheduled and drop-in clients on various legal issues. The outdoor “legal advice-a-thon” is held over five days – one day in each of Vancouver, Surrey, Victoria, Kelowna and Kamloops and 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.
