The TRU Community Legal Clinic is able to help more clients due to a fundraiser held by the Access to Justice Club (A2J Club) in support of the clinic’s work providing legal assistance to people in need.

Legal services are too costly for many low-income British Columbians, making personal finances the biggest barrier to accessing justice. The club decided the work of the clinic is crucial and embodies what the A2J Club is all about. The funds raised at a trivia night event on Nov. 15 hosted at the Fox ‘n’ Hounds Pub go toward the clinic’s work to improve access to justice in Kamloops and the BC Interior.

The TRU Community Legal Clinic will use these funds to cover out-of-pocket expenses clients incur during litigation that they cannot afford to pay themselves.
