Pro Bono Law Alberta (PBLA) is a charitable, provincial not-for-profit organization with a mission to improve access to justice by increasing the scope and availability of pro bono legal services for low income Albertans.
PBLA works to promote access to justice by:
~ creating pro bono opportunities for Alberta lawyers
~ working with law firms to develop pro bono policies and projects
~ leveraging pro bono resources in the community
~ enhancing the growth and fostering a pro bono culture in the legal profession
PBLA is not a legal clinic and does not provide legal advice to the public.
Are you a lawyer or law firm that wants to engage by volunteering to provide pro bono service? There are many opportunities for Alberta lawyers to get involved in pro bono service delivery.
Are you a member of the public in need of pro bono legal assistance? There are programs in Alberta that may be able to help.
PBLA is pleased to recognize Norton Rose Fulbright LLP (Calgary) with the 2014 Pro Bono Leader in Community Award for its many contributions to PBLA's court-based programs and annual Legal Grounds Advice Clinic. The Award was presented June 19, 2014 at the PBLA Annual Celebration.
Thank you to the hundreds of volunteer lawyers throughout Alberta who give their time and expertise to enhance greater access to justice through the provision of pro bono legal services.
