Vancouver Law Day - April 25, 2009

Law Day 2009, an annual event put on by the Canadian Bar Association - B.C. Branch provides the public with the opportunity to learn about the law, the legal profession and the legal institutions that form the cornerstones of our Canadian democracy.

Some events which may be helpful for those needing legal advice are:
