Law Students’ Legal Advice Program
LSLAP is a non-profit organization run by students at the Peter A. Allard School of Law. LSLAP provides free legal advice and representation to people who would not otherwise have access. The program provides advice on a number of legal issues including residential tenancy, employment standards and summary offence without possibility of jail time. There are a number of areas where LSLAP cannot provide advice, such as family law and indictable offences.
Student Legal Fund Society (SLFS)
The SLFS is a non-profit, student-run society with a mandate “to support litigation, advocacy, and lobbying for improved education and access to education at UBC, and other matters of law that set broad precedent and are of concern to UBC students.” The SLFS provides funding for legal cases that meet this mandate and can assist in contacting a lawyer. If you need legal assistance related to your life as a student, the SLFS is a great place to look.
In addition to providing funding, the SLFS runs Know Your Tenancy Rights and Know Your Civil Rights workshops. Visit the SLFS website for more details about COVID-19-related changes.
AMS Sexual Assault Support Centre (SASC)
The SASC provides accompaniment and advocacy support services for people of all genders who have experienced sexualized violence. It can assist in applying for the Crime Victim Assistance Program and connecting with a legal aid office, legal clinic or lawyer. It provides accompaniment through the legal system and can also assist you in accessing health and academic resources.
Legal resources on campus may be operating at a limited capacity as they respond to COVID-19.
