Our Work

CBABC advocates for issues important to our members, who develop and decide CBABC policy and law reform positions.

We engage the BC legislature through written submissions, committee appearances and informal meetings. Through regular consultation with the provincial government, the Law Society of British Columbia, the courts and other stakeholders, CBABC leads initiatives on behalf of the legal profession and in partnership with our justice system partners.

AGENDA FOR JUSTICE

CBABC recommendations to government in several areas of justice and legislation that will benefit British Columbians.

TRUTH & RECONCILIATION

CBABC response to Calls to Action includes goals for member programs and resources, Indigenous justice advocacy, and Indigenous lawyer leadership.

LEGAL AID

A leading priority for CBABC is continuous advocacy for increased funding of legal aid for the benefit of vulnerable people.

RURAL EDUCATION & ACCESS TO LAWYERS INITIATIVE

The REAL Initiative addresses lawyer shortages in BC’s small and rural communities.
