Help for Individuals

PBLA does not provide direct support to members of the public, rather it works with the Alberta legal profession to develop pro bono projects that support individual legal needs. The following is a list of current projects that may be able to help you as well as other links to pro bono clinics and lawyer referral services. Click on each project name or link to learn more.
