City Park plays host to outdoor free legal advice clinic

Dozens of lawyers will converge upon Kelowna’s City Park on Tuesday as part of a five-hour outdoor free legal advice clinic for local low-income individuals.

Mayor Sharon Shepherd has proclaimed Sept. 13 as Pro Bono Awareness Day in Kelowna. At the outdoor clinic, pro bono lawyers will be providing free legal advice to call attention to the charitable efforts of B.C. lawyers in the face of what they call a crisis in access to justice and the critical need for the provincial government to provide adequate funding for legal aid.

Titled Pro Bono Going Public 2011, the event will held in City Park’s rose garden area adjacent to Abbott Street, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
