Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC) is a multiple award-winning law student program that provides legal services without charge to organizations and individuals in need in Canada. Each year, PBSC provides over 1600 law students with volunteer opportunities to develop their legal skills by serving over 450 organizations from coast to coast. PBSC volunteers increase access to justice in Canada by providing high quality, professional legal assistance to vulnerable populations and individuals. By exposing law students to the value of pro bono service, PBSC aims to encourage the next generation of lawyers to make pro bono service an everyday part of their practice.
Volunteers at the University of Manitoba chapter have gained valuable legal experience in clinical settings, on research projects, and as legal interns throughout the Academic Year. With returning partners including the Community Legal Education Association and the Legal Help Centre, and new partners including the John Howard Society and the Canadian Mental Health Association, we look forward to another remarkable year.
Interested students are encouraged to prepare their resumes and send any questions they may have to firstname.lastname@example.org
