Pro Bono Ontario’s Free Legal Advice Hotline is barely six months old, and it has already provided pro bono legal services to over 6,000 callers with civil problems and nowhere to turn. It is hard to think of a more concrete and effective way for the legal profession to work together to increase access to justice.
Please consider volunteering your time for one full-day shift during TLA week! May 7-11 has been designated TLA week and we want to get our members out to help low-income Ontarians with, what are to them, overwhelming legal problems.
You can choose which areas of civil law you wish to service. The current choices are: civil procedure; employment; consumer; housing; corporate law for small businesses, charities and non-profits; and, creating powers of attorney.
