Law Day is a national event every April that celebrates the signing of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It is an occasion for the public to learn about the law, the legal profession and the legal institutions that form the cornerstones of Canadian democracy.
Activities include mock trials, courthouse tours, open citizenship courts, as well as public speaking and mock trial contests aimed at junior high and high school students.

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!
