Pro Bono News, Pro Bono Law Alberta, May 20, 2014
Pro Bono Law Alberta is pleased to work with Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC) chapters at both the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary. PBSC projects and partnerships provide law students with opportunities to do pro bono work and foster a sense of service to the community. PBLA has partnered with PBSC students in its court-based programs, Civil Claims Duty Counsel (CCDC) and Queen’s Bench (QB) Amicus, and several other projects.
In both the CCDC and QB Amicus programs, the PBSC students play an important role in assisting volunteer lawyers in delivering service to the public, and fostering access to justice for self-represented litigants in both programs. The programs offer students opportunities for mentorship with the volunteer lawyers, and to gain experience with client interviewing and other skills.
