Online Poverty Law Training Course


ProBono Law of BC's Online Poverty Law Training Course is a free online training course designed for lawyers and of benefit to some non-lawyer legal professionals (such as paralegals and advocates working in areas of poverty law).

The course provides an overview of welfare law, income assistance and disability assistance, effective skills for interviewing poverty law clients, reconsideration applications, tribunal proceedings and judicial review applications. Each self-paced module includes quick links to resources, a case study and quiz. The Law Foundation of British Columbia provided funding for this project.
