Volunteer as a Lawyer

We offer a wide range of frontline service roles for lawyers. They include giving advice in our community legal clinics, representing clients in courts or tribunals, and providing free consultations through our Lawyer Referral Service. We also provide training and support to volunteer lawyers.

Other Volunteer Opportunities

We also offer a wide range of volunteer roles for alternative legal service providers and people with no legal training. They include direct service roles for paralegals, notaries, mediators and articling students, and support roles for post-secondary students and others.
Our Programs
We operate a free lawyer referral service and several pro bono programs serving the critical legal needs of people and non-profit organizations across BC.
