Free Legal Services in BC: An overview of CLAS and APB programs

Front line service providers, advocates and lawyers are invited to attend this 1.5-hour webinar on the free legal services offered by Access Pro Bono (APB) and the Community Legal Assistance Society (CLAS).

Learn about the free legal clinics each of these organizations operate and the extent of legal advice or representation assistance a client can expect. This webinar is designed to raise awareness of the services APB and CLAS offer, and eligibility criteria for clients so that you can make more effective referrals for clients seeking free legal assistance and better manage client expectations. Following an overview of the programs, information on how lawyers can get involved in offering services through these programs will also be provided.

Attendees may claim up to 1.5 hours of CPD credit including 1 hour of Practice Management credit.
