Rise Women's Legal Centre

Rise Women’s Legal Centre is a new legal clinic in Vancouver providing free and low-cost legal services to low income women.  Legal services are provided by senior law students from the University of British Columbia’s Peter A. Allard School of Law, who receive training and supervision from on-site lawyer.

 To ensure its future sustainability, Vancity Community Foundation is supporting RISE to carry out a planning process to assess demand for its services, reach more women needing access to legal services, and grow fee-for service revenue to reduce reliance on grants.
