B.C. Law Week: Free telephone advice from lawyers and more

The B.C. Branch of the Canadian Bar Association is organizing its annual Law Week, which features a number of events from April 6 until April 27 (more than a week, but who's complaining?).  The events are made possible through the volunteer work of hundreds of lawyers from across British Columbia.

Some of the events on the agenda this year include mock trials, a public speaking contest for students, citizenship ceremonies, courthouse tours and a fun run and free public forum in Vancouver.  

The most popular program is undoubtedly the Dial-A-Lawyer event, scheduled for April 16, 2011 from 10:00am to 2:00pm.  Those in need of legal assistance can get 15 minutes of free advice over the phone from volunteer lawyers by calling 1.800.663.1919 or 604.687.3221.
