About Us

The Public Interest Law Clinic at the University of Calgary facilitates access to justice, supports litigation on public interest legal issues, and advocates for law reform.

The Public Interest Law Clinic is a legal clinic at the University of Calgary Faculty of Law, created to advocate for systemic change that values and advances the well-being of the public and the environment. Second and third year law students who are taking the PILC clinical course (co-taught by the Executive Director and a Staff Lawyer) provide services to the PILC’s clients. A practicing lawyer, who is licensed and insured by the Law Society of Alberta, supervises the clinic students.

The Public Interest Law Clinic has an Advisory Committee that oversees policies and approves all projects. The members of the Committee are the Dean of the University of Calgary Faculty of Law, the Executive Director of the clinic, law professors, practicing lawyers, and community representatives.
