How do you find or get legal help? Or do you? Legal problems are something many Albertans face in their lifetime, yet many people can’t find or get the help they need.
The Law Society of Alberta (LSA) would like to understand if Albertans face barriers when finding or getting legal help. LSA is encouraging as many Albertans as possible to share their experiences with getting legal help or why they chose not to get legal help. The goal is to learn as much as they can about the barriers to getting legal help and ideas for making it easier to ensure access to legal services for all Albertans.
