Sahwoo Mohkaak Tsi Ma Taas (Before Being Judged) Program

Calgary Legal Guidance offers free lawyer services through summary advice clinics at our office and around the city.

These services are offered through our Indigenous Articling student, which is a student lawyer in their final year before being called to the bar. The summary advice clinics are offered in partnership with the Aboriginal Friendship Centre and Metis Nation of Alberta.

Sahwoo Mohkaak Tsi Ma Taas has recognized the barriers in the justice system for Indigenous people, in which Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action and elders will be present as a guide.

Sahwoo Mohkaak Tsi Ma Taas also recognizes the need for outreach services, so if you are looking into bringing CLG services to your community such as Legal Education Presentations, Summary Legal Advice clinics, and ID clinics, please call us.
