Resources for Lawyers

There are many online resources for APB lawyers to access and use in aid of delivering legal services to their pro bono clients.

Clicklaw

Clicklaw is a website aimed at enhancing access to justice in BC.  It features legal information and education, but it is not a site of laws.  Instead, Clicklaw features legal information and education designed for the public from over 24 contributor organizations, as well as selected others.

UBC Law Students Legal Advice Manual

The Law Students Legal Advice Program (LSLAP) Manual is comprised of approximately 1000 pages of legal information, divided into 23 chapters by area of law.  The Manual is easy-to-use and provides quick answers to many legal issues.  Originally designed as an educational resource for LSLAP students, it is now used by hundreds of legal and non-legal organizations across BC.  With the assistance of legal professionals, LSLAP students revise the Manual annually to reflect changes in the law.  It is published each August as a binder-bound hard copy, fully updated with new cases and new or amended legislation.
