Everyone Legal Clinic issues Call for 2024/25 Articling Applications

The Everyone Legal Clinic (ELC) has issued its Call for 2024/25 Articling Applications. ELC is Access Pro Bono BC's international award-winning and BC-wide public interest law incubator that launched in May 2022 as part of the Law Society of BC’s Innovation Sandbox.

For 2024/25, ELC is accepting up to 10 new articling clinicians (final number to be determined by level of government funding), and is providing a baseline annual income of $40,000 to each clinician for work they do through/for Access Pro Bono BC and ELC. Clinicians will still have the opportunity to earn up to $20,000 more by way of fee-paying client work and outside employment (so long as it does not interfere with their professional development).

The Clinic encourages applications from members of communities that face discrimination and disadvantage, and gives preference to applicants who self-identify as a member of one or more of: Indigenous people, persons with disabilities, 2SLGBTQ+ people, and people of colour/racialized people.
