Please note that Townshippers’ Association’s legal info service is closed till Fall 2023 . Any email or phone requests made in the coming weeks will receive a response only after the legal student volunteer returns to the office.
FREE LEGAL INFO Clinic IN ENGLISH!
Thanks to a partnership with the Université de Sherbrooke, Townshippers’ Association is pleased to provide the community with free, easy and confidential access to legal information in English. A student from the Law Faculty at the Université de Sherbrooke volunteers once a week each semester to answer legal questions by phone, email and in person by appointment.
It is important to note that interns in our legal information clinic are still students. They are not allowed by law to dispense advice or offer opinions; this is reserved for lawyers who have passed the bar exam. Students can provide information and refer people to practising lawyers as well as other services such as Éducaloi.
HOW DOES THE Legal Info CLinic WORK?
The Legal Info Clinic serves most of its clients by email or phone. With your first contact you will be asked to provide your contact information and details about the situation you are seeking information about so that the volunteer can carry out the necessary research and verify the quality of the answer they prepare for you, which may take up to two weeks. Once the research is completed, the volunteer will contact you with a response.
