Pro Bono Law Alberta has been involved in this project since it began in 2008. Our sincere appreciation goes to all the volunteer lawyers who give their time to help women in Calgary move forward with their legal matters. Thanks to the Women’s Centre for continuing to offer this very important program in our community!
PBSC is a national, multiple award-winning organization with chapters in 22 of Canada’s 23 law schools. The first pro bono organization in the country, PBSC has been working with law schools and the bar to deliver high-quality legal services for over 20 years. PBSC has extensive program expertise and experience designing access to justice placements that are recognized as having a significant impact on access to justice. Supreme Court Justice Rosalie Abella has described PBSC as “one of the most visionary undertakings I have seen in my 40 years at the bar.”
The Women’s Centre of Calgary continues to serve a great number of women in our community. In the first 5 months of this year, the Centre successfully hosted 76 legal advice clinics with a total attendance of 157 women.
