Pro Bono Students Canada
Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC) is an award-winning program that provides free legal services to non-profit organizations and low-income Canadians in 20 cities from coast to coast. For over two decades, PBSC has been training law student volunteers to help vulnerable Canadians with their essential legal needs.
Partnering with courts, community organizations, and law firms, we offer innovative, high-impact placements in all areas of the law, supporting vulnerable and marginalized communities across Canada including: homeless and transient individuals, women, newcomers, LGBTQ populations, and Indigenous communities.
Operating in 22 law schools across Canada, PBSC has exposed generations of law students to the value of pro bono service, helping to create a culture of service in the legal profession.
Demand for our placements in so great, each year we have to turn away a staggering 900+ students who are eager to give back to the community due to lack of funds. This is where donations can help! If you are passionate about pro bono and believe that access to justice is a right that every Canadian should have, please consider donating to PBSC. As a not-for-profit organization, we rely on donations and partnerships to make our work possible. Thank you for your support!
All donations made through this campaign will go directly to Pro Bono Students Canada, and can be recognized by PBSC in a variety of ways including through legal community publications and by our hosting organization, the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law.
