Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC) is a national network of law schools and community organizations that match law students with public interest and non-governmental organizations, government agencies, tribunals and legal clinics during the academic year. PBSC is the only national organization of its kind in Canada with over 1600 volunteers spread across all 21 Canadian Law Faculties.
The goal of PBSC is to provide much-needed services to underrepresented communities and organizations across Canada. Since its creation, PBSC has accomplished both of these goals and helped to enrich relationships among law schools, the profession, and disadvantaged communities. By exposing law students to the value of pro bono service, PBSC aims to encourage the next generation of lawyers to make pro bono service an everyday part of their practice.
