Pro Bono Students Canada

WestlawNext Canada


PBSC was thrilled when WestlawNext Canada (Carswell, a Thomson Reuters business) became one of our national partners in 2011. From PBSC’s perspective, it is critical that our student volunteers receive proper training in legal research and writing (LRW) when working on a PBSC project. WestlawNext Canada generously offered to provide this training to every PBSC chapter in Canada. The professionals at WestlawNext Canada have created a unique LRW training program for our students, adapted to the kinds of public interest projects that make up the bulk of PBSC’s efforts. This training program from WestlawNext Canada significantly enhances the quality of the work PBSC law students are able to provide, and thus the development and delivery of pro bono services across the country. PBSC is grateful for WestlawNext Canada’s support and dedication to increasing access to justice for Canadians.
