The Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) is funded by the Law Foundation of British Columbia and operated by the Access Pro Bono Society of BC.
The LRS program enables the public to access lawyers and provides the opportunity to have a free consultation with a lawyer for up to 30 minutes.
Lawyers voluntarily join the service so not all lawyers in British Columbia are registered on the LRS program.
After the consultation, the fees to be charged are strictly between the lawyer and the client.
The lawyer is not obliged to accept the applicant’s case and the applicant is under no obligation to retain the lawyer.
