Volunteer Lawyers Wanted

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.

Volunteer Lawyer Positions

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:

  •      Family
  •      Civil
  •      Landlord & Tenant
  •      Debt
  •      Immigration & Estate Law

We are seeing an increase in callers this month and looking for more help from the legal community. If you are a lawyer, and have time to provide legal advice and information to our low-income community members, please contact our Volunteer Manager Kim for more information.

ALBERTA DEBTOR SUPPORT PROJECT

With income supports and temporary mortgage deferrals tapering off and expiring this fall, the economic fallout of Covid-19 will create an enormous wave of secured and unsecured consumer debt defaults and foreclosures. Calgary Legal Guidance, Pro Bono Law Alberta and the UofC Public Interest Law Clinic are looking for retired judges and lawyers interested in volunteering to provide virtual advice to Albertans dealing with debt. Email Kim for more information.

THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!
Thank you to all of our ‘stars’ who are at the heart of what we do in delivering access to justice and legal guidance to those who do not have access to paid legal services.  We could not do this without you!
