Scholarships at Everyone Legal Clinic
In 2022, the ALF donated $20,000 to create the "CBABC Aboriginal Lawyers Forum Scholarship" to fund Indigenous-to-Canada articling student scholarships through the Everyone Legal Clinic, run by Access Pro Bono.
The ELC aims to increase access to justice for low and modest income people by having articling students provide affordable, high quality legal services to underserved communities across BC. These values align with the ALF's dedication to Indigenous people and the legal profession.
"Access Pro Bono has created a solution that offers students the supportive articling experience they need, while having a larger positive impact of helping those in our communities who rely on free or low-cost legal services."
