PBLA, the Canadian Bar Association - Alberta Branch, and members of the judiciary from the Alberta Courts, worked together to produce four educational videos that are available for the public to view at the Calgary and Edmonton Court Houses.
The videos provide unrepresented claimants with short, easy to understand instructions about basic courtroom procedures, processes, etiquette and other useful information. The videos are in the areas of Landlord and Tenant, Foreclosure and Civil Claims.
The CBA Young Lawyers in Calgary and Junior Lawyers in Edmonton wrote the scripts and acted in the videos. The lawyers also worked closely with members of the judiciary in the creation of the content for all the videos. The videos were launched at PBLA's 5th Anniversary celebration on June 21, 2012 in Calgary.
Included with each video are downloadable transcripts in English, Spanish, French, and Arabic. In early 2016 additional transcripts were developed for each of the topics in Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu. A list of resources discussed in the Landlord and Tenant, Foreclosures and Civil Claims videos is also available for download.
