The Canadian Bar Association, BC Branch (CBABC) is celebrating Law Week 2014 on April 10.

It is a national celebration of the signing of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

This year’s theme is Access to Justice: What does it mean to you? Law Day events across Canada are made possible through the efforts of hundreds of lawyers who donate thousands of hours of volunteer time.

On April 12, the CBABC Branch will hold its province-wide “Dial-A-Lawyer Day” from 10 to 11:45 a.m. and from 12:15 to 2 p.m.

British Columbians are invited to call 604-687-3221 or toll-free at 1-800-663-1919 to speak with a lawyer for up to 15 minutes at no cost in the following seven areas of law (family, wills & estates, torts & motor vehicle accidents, immigration, business, employment and criminal).

Law Week 2014 partners are the Canadian Bar Association, BC Branch, the Law Foundation of BC, the Law Society of BC, the Continuing Legal Education Society of BC, and the Vancouver Bar Association.
