What We

Pro Bono Law Alberta (PBLA) is a non-profit charitable organization that promotes access to justice in Alberta by creating and promoting opportunities for lawyers to provide pro bono (free) legal services to persons of limited means.

What Sets Us Apart

Our Mission 

Our mission is to engage the legal community and leverage their skills and resources in pro bono services that facilitate access to justice for Albertans. 

Pro Bono Law Alberta 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; and

  • Enhancing the growth and fostering a pro bono culture in the legal profession.

PBLA is not a direct provider of pro bono services to the public, but rather works through partnerships, collaborative projects, and events that involve the legal community and organizations providing pro bono legal services. As PBLA is not a direct service provide, we work primarily with the legal community to encourage pro bono service through varied volunteer opportunities, which in turn, benefit low-income Albertans seeking legal assistance. Visit the Get Legal Help page for more information on pro bono legal services in Alberta.
