The Equity Ombudsperson is independent of the Law Society. She confidentially assists anyone in a BC law firm (staff, articling students and lawyers) who asks for help in resolving a discrimination or harassment complaint against a lawyer, and also assists law firms in preventing discrimination. She is available to provide training and education to firms to assist them with the issues of discrimination, harassment and power-imbalances.
This service can assist law firms to retain staff. These services are available and free to lawyers, articled students and other law firm staff. This program is funded by the Law Society of BC. .
