Who Can Volunteer with VLS?
VLS volunteers come from every type of legal background. They range from recent law school graduates to the most seasoned lawyers, and include lawyers from large downtown firms to sole practitioners in rural Alberta. Diversity aside, they all have one thing in common: the desire to use their unique skills and talents to address the critical legal needs of low-income Albertans and non-profit organizations. If you belong to one of these Law Society of Alberta membership categories, then you can engage in delivery of pro bono legal services through the Volunteer Lawyer Services program:
- Active Member
- Active Exempt Lawyer
- Active for Pro Bono Only Member
VLS is committed to providing rewarding opportunities for pro bono lawyers to make meaningful contributions to Alberta.
