Free law advice at summer clinics

A number of Law Students' Legal Advice Clinics (LSLAP) are offering free legal advice to low income residents through summer clinics. UBC law students volunteer for the program and can help people dealing with some criminal, residential tenancy and small claims. The students work under a supervising lawyer who offers assistance when needed. There are clinics open throughout the Lower Mainland all summer. The clinics are open every Tuesday between 3 and 7 p.m. For more information visit www.lslap.bc.ca.

I supervise one of the LSLAP clinics and I can tell you that the students offer an excellent service; they listen carefully, they think critically about legal problems and they leave no stone unturned in looking for a solution to their clients' legal problems. If you are on a fixed income and need legal advice, I would highly recommend giving LSLAP a call.
