ALAS facilitates the operation of a pro-bono service whereby volunteer lawyers provide information and summary legal advice to creators working in all disciplines. A volunteer lawyer will meet with you and discuss your legal matter on a confidential basis. The lawyer will not provide you with legal services after your meeting and you will not form an ongoing lawyer-client relationship with him or her.
The ALAS Legal Clinic is by-appointment only, and there are no drop-ins available. If you wish to make an appointment to speak with a lawyer then please fill out the form below, or call 416-367-2527.
This simple form should not take long to complete, but if you have any questions do not hesitate to Contact Us. Once we have your completed form we will contact you to let you know if you have qualified for the legal clinic and to advise on scheduling.
Appointments consist of 30-minute consultations. A lawyer will listen to your concerns and provide summary advice aimed at addressing your legal issues.
The consultation is free, but we suggest a $20 donation to help cover our operational costs. ALAS is an independent organization that is entirely dependent on donations, which may be made in person or through the PayPal link below.
To make an appointment for the legal clinic, please complete and submit the intake form, or call 416-367-2527.
Please note that appointments must be scheduled in advance. No drops ins allowed.
