We welcome applications from law students, graduates and legal professionals. Mobilizing legal volunteers to change the lives of those in need « Volunteering at WLSSA has been such a rewarding experience that I will take with me throughout my legal career.
I went into my first shift feeling pretty nervous, but everyone at WLSSA made me feel welcome and gave me the proper support and training I needed to feel confident in my role. I had the opportunity to give general legal information over the phone and make appointments for lawyers. Volunteering at WLSSA is an experience that law school cannot offer, and I am grateful for this opportunity. Do you have a passion for politics, human rights, gender equality and inclusion? Would you like to volunteer at a leading legal centre? Are you a law student in your 3rd year or more?

You will volunteer to work in a very supportive environment, closely monitored by experienced lawyers. Looking for a new pro bono opportunity?
