MONTREAL, April 17, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - On April 21st and 22nd, the Young Bar Association of Montreal (YBAM) in partnership with the Québec Bar and Éducaloi, will hold its annual Legal Helpline. During that weekend, more than one hundred volunteer lawyers from different regions of Québec will offer free legal advice to the public from 9 am until 5 pm. The Annual Legal Helpline of the YBAM is the perfect occasion for the population to get informed on their rights and obligations. Our volunteer lawyers will answer all legal questions related to subjects such as family, work, consumer products, order of succession and much more.
The goal is to improve access to justice by offering free legal services to the population. For its Annual Legal Helpline, the YBAM will have three call centres in operation in the cities of Montréal, Québec and Sherbrooke. Thanks to a toll-free number, the members of the YBAM will be able to count on the support of their colleagues from various other young bars of the province, including the young bar associations of Laval, Longueuil, Outaouais, Québec and St-François. The YBAM's Annual Legal Helpline is the only one of its kind to offer a free legal consultation service to the entire population of the province of Québec, for the duration of a weekend.
