We are looking for volunteers for the Preparation Service for Hearing (Quebec Court of Appeal, as part of YBM’s Pro Bono Legal Services.
This service provides litigants who represent themselves in the Quebec Court of Appeal with a 20-30 minute consultation with one of our volunteer lawyers. These meetings are designed to prepare a litigant for their brief, and offering them insight into the workings of an instance and a hearing in the Quebec Court of Appeal. The volunteer lawyer essentially provides the litigant with legal information.
Meetings take place from Mondays to Fridays during lunch, between noon and 2 p.m., at the Montréal Courthouse. This service is offered by appointment only. A list of appointment will be made available to each volunteer lawyer prior to sessions, thereby avoiding conflicts of interest.
Volunteer lawyers with any questions are invited to contact the Pro bono Legal Services coordinator by phone 514-954-3487 or at the following address [email protected].
