Thanks to the efforts of 34 volunteer lawyers, 111 people received free legal advice on October 19, 2016 at Calgary Public Library. This is the 6th year that Pro Bono Law Alberta has collaborated with Norton Rose Fulbright LLP, Calgary Legal Guidance and Calgary Public Library to host this Legal Advice Clinic. In addition to the Norton Rose Fulbright team, five independent lawyers provided advice to walk in clients and six paralegals assisted with client flow and collecting feedback. Thank you to everyone who participated in this event!
