Your Path to Justice: 13th Annual Calgary Legal Advice Clinic Returns
In a continued effort to champion equal access to justice, Pro Bono Law Alberta (PBLA) is delighted to announce the return of the 13th Annual Calgary Legal Advice Clinic (CLAC) on December 12th, 2023. This year, in collaboration with Calgary Legal Guidance (CLG) and Norton Rose Fulbright Canada LLP, we extend a warm welcome to Shell Canada, a strong partner joining us with a shared aspiration of empowering the community.
Continuing the tradition, our dedicated volunteer lawyers will step out from the courthouses, bringing their passion and legal expertise to the beautiful Calgary Central Library on Tuesday, December 12, 2023, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Members of the public can receive FREE, confidential advice from a volunteer lawyer for 30 minutes. This year’s Calgary Legal Advice Clinic will cover legal issues across various sections of law, including Family Law, Immigration, Civil Litigation, Landlord/Tenant, Employment/Labor, Wills and Estates, Criminal, and, for the first time, we are introducing Privacy Law to the clinic.
