Student Legal Services of Edmonton (SLS) is a student-managed, non-profit society dedicated to helping low-income individuals in Edmonton and area understand their legal issues and solve their legal problems. Each year, over 250 students from the University of Alberta Faculty of Law volunteer with SLS.
SLS is divided into four different projects:
- The Civil and Family Law Project. This project offers assistance with landlord/tenant matters, contracts, WCB/AISH/CPP/EI hearings, family law matters, uncontested divorces, and more.
- The Criminal Law Project. This project provides basic criminal law information and represents individuals charged with relatively minor criminal and quasi-criminal offences.
- The Legal Education and Reform Project. This project offers community lectures and outreach programs, and researches poverty-related law reform issues.
- Pro Bono Students Canada. The local chapter of this Canada-wide student group conducts legal research for non-profit organizations.
