Rise Women's Legal Centre

Rise Women's Legal Centre provides free and low cost legal services to women in British Columbia. Services include:

  • legal advice on family law, help with JG applications for child protection cases
  • unbundled legal services (help from a lawyer for parts of your case) that include preparing and notarizing court documents and affidavits;
  • representation in selected Provincial courts (Vancouver area only), and
  • access to your legal rights.

The clinic provides a safe space for women experiencing violence. Legal services are delivered by upper-year students at the Peter A. Allard School of Law, UBC, who are supervised and supported by two full-time lawyers. The centre also has a small self-help centre you can use during regular business hours.

The Centre is at:

201 – 456 West Broadway
