Welcome to Central Alberta Community Legal Clinic

The Central Alberta Community Legal Clinic (CACLC) provides legal advice and information to people who cannot afford a lawyer and do not qualify for legal aid.

Volunteer Lawyers provide information and summary legal advice in the Clinic Program about a variety of legal matters including family and civil law, by appointment only.

After attending our Clinic Program, some clients may qualify for additional assistance in our Follow Up Program with the Staff Lawyer. Services may include the preparation and filing of documents or, where appropriate, representation in court.

If we cannot provide the assistance needed, we will refer clients to the appropriate community resources.

Do you need legal advice but can't afford a lawyer?

If you are an individual with a legal problem and need information or advice, you can fill out an intake form in person or over the phone. Click here for Intake Form.

Are you an agency working with low-income people who have legal issues?

If you are an agency that provides service to low-income Albertans, the CACLC may be able to provide legal guidance and education to the clients that you serve. In addition, we can help your staff become more knowledgeable about the law and legal process through workshops and presentations. If your agency is interested in learning more, please contact us.

Are you a Lawyer or Law Firm looking for ways to give back to the community?

If you or your firm is looking for ways to give back to the community, the CACLC is always grateful for volunteers and financial contributions. Contact Kathy to discuss how you can help the CACLC provide pro bono services in Central Alberta,
