Want to Volunteer for CLG?
Volunteer lawyers are a crucial part of our volunteer base. There are many opportunities to get involved in our legal clinics, pro bono projects, research, and other initiatives. No specific area of expertise is required to volunteer at CLG. We ensure that all lawyers have the resources, training, and support to provide the information and advice that our clients need. This applies to lawyers at big firms, in solo practice, working in-house, or anything in between. All are welcome! The only requirements for volunteering are a commitment to help individuals and membership in the Law Society of Alberta.

Our Immigration clients attend with a variety of legal questions and issues such as refugee protection, permanent residence applications, sponsorship, Humanitarian and Compassionate applications.
Fundraising is critical to CLG’s operations. As valued members of CLG’s volunteer family, fundraisers work through various programs and events which enable us to provide Legal Clinics, Workshops, Advocacy Programs, and much more, to thousands of Calgarians who do not otherwise have access to legal resources.
CLG is currently seeking an experienced, accountable, and savvy Manager for our Advice-A-Thon 2018 Fundraising Team. This is an annual initiative which creates and fosters relationships between CLG and the legal and corporate communities in the Calgary area. Although this is a volunteer position, a time commitment of 5 – 15 hours per week will be required until the end of September. This position has the potential to lead to a part-time paid role for the right candidate.
