Pro Bono Civil Legal Assistance

Pro Bono Law of BC has launched the Civil Chambers Pro Bono Duty Counsel Project as a pilot project operating at 800 Smithe Street in Vancouver. Each Wednesday in 2008, volunteer lawyers from several large Vancouver law firms will provide pro bono legal assistance and representation to unrepresented low- and modest-income people who need to appear in civil chambers (BC Supreme Court and BC Court of Appeal, contested and uncontested). They cannot assist on family chambers matters, see other eligibility criteria and other information on their website.
