The 2nd Annual Edmonton Community Legal Centre (ECLC) Advice-a-Thon will take place Saturday, September 24 from 10 am to 4 pm at Churchill Square.
Volunteer lawyers will provide FREE summary legal advice to lower income Edmontonians in a variety of areas of law. In addition to legal advice there will be food, drinks, and entertainment, all hosted by ECLC volunteers and staff.
Last year’s inaugural Advice-A-Thon was an incredible success with 34 lawyers participating, 92 clients receiving legal advice, 224 additional people received ECLC info and/or legal information and referral, $23,095 raised by volunteer lawyers, $8,250 in corporate sponsorships and an increased awareness of our services to the community.
This year’s goal is to have 60 lawyers assisting in areas of Civil, Family, Criminal and Immigration Law. For details and to sign up visit http://www.eclc.ca/advice-a-thon/
