The Pro Bono Map of BC: Like a Google Map for Free Legal Services

Yesterday I stumbled upon a great tool for low-income litigants trying to figure out where to get free legal advice and representation. The Pro Bono Map of BC allows you to search for the kind of help you need (legal representation, advice, referrals) in the area of law you need it (employment, small claims, immigration, etc.) where you happen to live (locations all over the province). The search results provide you with the name, contact information and map location of the clinics that can help you with your problem in your area.

The integration of these search criteria lets a user cut through confusion about which pro bono organization can help with a particular problem and helps people access legal services as close as possible to where they live (an important factor for low-income clients who may not have ready access to transportation).
