Recorded on: November 22, 2018
Lawyers have the privilege to be experts in the rule of law and provide quality and effective legal services in order to solve client’s problems on a daily basis. With that privilege, comes an acknowledgement that not all members of the public are able to access private counsel services due to their socio-economic status. As we all know, there are many opportunities to take on pro bono files, but there may be questions about the logistics of taking on a file. Do I have to do a conflict check? Am I insured when taking on a pro bono file? What makes a file qualify for “pro bono”? This pro bono webinar will discuss the Code of Conduct rules for providing pro bono services and answers questions regarding conflict checks, insurance coverage, and what are the available pro bono opportunities in Saskatchewan.
