Now in its 14th year, our annual free legal advice-a-thon will be a virtual event to continue our mission to increase access to justice throughout BC.
PBGP 2021 will run for two work weeks-- September 13 to 24 -- in a sustained effort to raise awareness and funds for our pro bono programs. Lawyers from across BC will register to provide one or two hours of free legal advice over the telephone to low and modest income British Columbians in need. All appointments will be pre-scheduled and will provide ample time for conflict checks. Advice appointments can be booked here.
Volunteer lawyers will provide free legal advice by telephone or online in a 10-day province-wide advice-a-thon. Clients will be low-to-modest income British Columbians in need of urgent legal advice. All appointments will be pre-scheduled. This annual event raises much-needed funds and awareness for APB’s pro bono programs.
