Student Legal Assistance (SLA) is the on-campus law clinic staffed by U of C law students who, with the assistance of volunteer advising lawyers, provide free representation and legal assistance to U of C students and needy Calgary and area residents who are unable to afford a lawyer.
SLA provides services throughout the year in civil, criminal and family law matters, with evening clinics during the academic year and daytime clinics during the summer months.
SLA student caseworkers can assist with academic appeals and with most matters in Provincial Court and administrative tribunals, including contract disputes, landlord-tenant matters, employment and wrongful termination disputes, traffic and by-law infractions, criminal law matters where the Crown proceeds by summary conviction and is not seeking jail time and some family law matters, excluding divorce and child welfare. SLA also provides commissioner for oaths and notarial services free of charge for students. A disbursement charge may apply.
For donation purposes, please note that SLA is a registered charitable organization.
For further information, to make a donation or to book an intake appointment, please call during business hours.
