This year’s theme is: “Celebrate the Value of Volunteering – building confidence, competence, connections and community”. Volunteering is often seen as a selfless act; a person gives their time, skills, experience, and passion to help others, without expecting anything in return. And while volunteering is a form of service, many volunteers will tell you that “you get more than you give”. From opportunities to develop new skills, to finding deep and meaningful personal connections, the magic of volunteering is that it creates social and economic value for all.
Pro Bono Law Alberta celebrates the thousands of volunteer lawyers, law students and articling students who give their time and expertise to volunteer for our court-based programs and Volunteer Lawyer Services program. Thank you for your service!
Calgary Public Library offers free legal information programs at Central Library and our community libraries across Calgary. All programs are free. Advanced registration is welcomed but not a requirement. Drop-in patrons are always welcomed.
Calgary Public Library acknowledges and values our longstanding partnership with Calgary Legal Guidance, which makes these free programs possible for the community.
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.
