Summer Law Volunteer Program

Each year we host several legal volunteers during the summer. For information about our summer opportunities for law students please click here. Please note that the deadline to submit applications for a position in the summer of 2022 has passed and we are no longer accepting applications for our summer program. Details on the process to apply for the 2023 summer period will be posted here around December 2022.

Law Student Volunteers During School Year

During the school year we host several law students as volunteers through Pro Bono Students Canada. Please get in touch with the PBSC chapter at your school to find out more about these opportunities. If you are attending law school outside of Canada please fill out our volunteer form, or email us at volunteer@ccla.org with any questions.
