Welcome!

Welcome to the University of New Brunswick’s Chapter of Pro Bono Students Canada! We have been operating since 1999, so are ready to celebrate our 20th anniversary! We offer pro bono services with community partners to communities in need, from women escaping domestic violence to vulnerable environmental areas.

 

Please browse the site and find out some more about PBSC as a whole, our Chapter and our partners in the community. If you want to become a community partner (or supervising lawyer), we look for projects in early summer. Please contact the program coordinator, Sarah MacCallum, via the email or phone number listed under the contact page.
