Access Pro Bono’s new BC-wide and first-of-its-kind public interest law incubator, the Everyone Legal Clinic, is launching in May 2022. As part of the Law Society of BC’s Innovation Sandbox, the Clinic will launch as an experiential learning centre for articling students and new notaries, and as a solo and small firm incubator for practitioners who then provide affordable high quality legal services to underserved communities across BC.
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. “Our ongoing involvement with Access Pro Bono reflects our long term commitment to improving access to justice”, says Managing Partner, Jonathan Meadows. “We are excited about this latest initiative that will improve the equity, diversity and accessibility of BC’s articling system and also provide affordable legal services to underserved communities across BC. We are grateful to Access Pro Bono for their ongoing efforts to pioneer such vital programs and we welcome the opportunity to partner with them to help develop BC’s new generation of community lawyers.”
