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.
CLG Volunteer lawyers continue to provide legal advice and information during our office closure. We are offering callers 45 minute appointments either by phone or online. We are looking for volunteers to assist on numerous legal issues including:
Volunteer Lawyers for our free Legal Advice Clinic. Must be an active (or Active for Pro Bono) member of the Alberta Law Society. Able to commit to a minimum of one 2 hour shift per month either in person or remotely by phone or online meeting. Provide free legal advice and information to low income individuals.
Volunteer Lawyers for Public Legal Information. Provide zoom presentations to community members in a variety of areas of the law. Provide training to partner agency staff in areas of the law so they can better serve their clients.
