There are many ways that lawyers, articling students and law students can get involved in pro bono service throughout Alberta. There are volunteer opportunities at authorized pro bono clinics, with Volunteer Lawyers Service anywhere in the province, or through a PBLA project such as Civil Claims Duty Council (Edmonton and Calgary) or the 1000 Voices Legal Clinic (Calgary) for example.
PBLA creates paths to possibilities for lawyers to use their unique legal skills to provide pro bono services to those who otherwise may not have access to legal services.
