Pro Bono Going Public 2013

Lehal Law was again be involved in the “Pro Bono Going Public” event. This is an annual event which provides free legal advice to those in need. See excerpt below from Access Pro Bono website.

“This September, lawyers will once again provide free legal advice in the streets of New Westminster, Vancouver and Victoria and for the first time in Kamloops and Surrey – in order to raise awareness and funds for BC’s pro bono programs. The free legal advice-a-thon will facilitate access to justice for low-and modest-income people, including the homeless, by engaging lawyers in advising pre-scheduled and drop-in clients on all legal issues.

The open-air legal advice clinics will be held over five days (one day in each city) and will rely on the volunteer efforts of over 100 lawyers. Participating lawyers will be encouraged to obtain pledges from family, friends and co-workers in direct support of pro bono programs operated by Access Pro Bono.

Last year, we raised over $60,000 for pro bono programming in BC. This year, our goal is to raise $65,000, and we need your support to help us reach our target!”
