2017 Student Legal Services By The Numbers
Student Legal Services of Edmonton (SLS) is a student-managed, non-profit society dedicated to helping low-income individuals with access to justice in Edmonton since 1969. For the last 45 years, student volunteers from UAlberta Law have provided free legal information and agency in the courts to those who would otherwise be unable to afford these services. SLS provides assistance in the areas of civil, criminal and family law, and offers community outreach in legal education and research assistance to non-profit organizations.
In addition to providing low-income Edmontonians with pro-bono legal advice, SLS also enables students to gain valuable, hands-on experience working with real clients, while at the same time mastering their legal skills and building their professional resumes.
