You can help promote public legal education and support Community Legal Information by participating in the Lawyer Referral Service or serving on the Board of Directors.
Volunteer with the Lawyer Referral Service (LRS)
The LRS is a collaboration between The Law Society of PEI and Community Legal Information. Islanders can call Community Legal Information and receive a referral to a lawyer in the community.
Upon referral, you will meet with the client for up to 45 minutes and provide general information and advice. The client pays $25 plus tax.
We make every effort to ensure the experience is a positive one. Note that:
- There is no obligation to take on the case.
- You can set limits on how many referrals you take.
- If your current schedule happens to be too busy when a client is referred to you through the LRS, you can tell them that you are currently unavailable.
- If you need an extended period without referrals just let us know and we can put your name on hold.
Participating lawyers have a significant positive impact on Islanders’ lives.
This service is in high demand.
People are often overwhelmed and confused by the legal system and appreciate the opportunity to have a short conversation with a lawyer that can be of great help in making important decisions.
