Volunteer Lawyer Services Roster Program
Non-profits and charities with discrete legal issues can apply to the Volunteer Lawyer Services Roster Program for assistance with a specific legal issue. Through the VLS Roster Program, PBLA tries to match non-profits and charitable organizations with volunteer lawyers. Non-profits and charities may be able to receive assistance on a variety of legal issues that impact their day-to-day operations, including by-law reviews, general contract drafting and reviews, volunteer waivers, incorporation, charitable registration and more.
To apply for the program, download and complete the VLS Application Form and return it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like more information about how VLS can assist your organization, please contact us.
Volunteer Lawyer Services is generously funded by the United Way of Calgary and Area and the Law Society of Alberta.
PBLA promotes access to justice through partnerships, collaborative projects and events that involve the legal community and authorized pro bono clinics throughout the province. We connect non-profit organizations and partner law firms in Alberta to develop strategic partnerships that provide legal services to Albertans in need. PBLA has been involved in several innovative partnerships and projects with law firms, not-for-profit organizations and pro bono and legal organizations, such as legal advice clinics at the Women’s Centre of Calgary, the Wellspring Calgary, and Alcove Addictions Recovery for Women.
If you are from a non-profit organization and would like more information on developing a strategic partnership to serve the clients at your organization, please contact the Community Engagement Manager at email@example.com.
