Are you interested in doing some pro bono work?
Access Legal Help NS may be able to help

The Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia (LISNS) is rolling out its Access Legal Help pilot project across Nova Scotia and one of our first stops is Sydney. The purpose of Access Legal Help NS is to improve access to summary legal advice for Nova Scotians with limited financial means.

Access Legal Help NS provides:        

  1. A central place where Nova Scotians can find out about programs and agencies that provide free legal advice; and        
  2. Two-hour legal clinics where the public can get free legal advice through pre-scheduled appointments.

You are invited to an information session to find out more about the project and how it can provide you with pro bono opportunities, including the new Regional Justice Centre (excluding HRM) pilot to assist self-represented litigants with court forms and processes.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Please RSVP by November 7 to accesslegalhelp@legalinfo.org

If you are unable to attend but would like to know more about the project please contact accesslegalhelp@legalinfo.org
