Thanks to a long-standing collaboration with the Université de Sherbrooke’s Law Faculty, a third-year law student volunteers one day per week from September to April answering your legal questions by phone, email, and in person by appointment, at Townshippers’ Sherbrooke office. This service is free, confidential and offered in English.

Please note: Clinic volunteers do not provide legal advice; only information.

Frequently asked questions about Townshippers’ Legal Information Clinic:

Yes, however its important to note that the service is faster by email or phone. In-person visits should be made in advance by appointment.

The Clinic serves most of its clients by email or phone. With your first contact you will be asked to provide your contact information and details about your situation in order to narrow down your legal questions. The volunteer will then carry out the necessary research and verify the quality of the answer they prepare, which may take up to one week. Once the research is completed, the volunteer will call you back with an answer.

No, it can take a week or two for a volunteer to research the answer to your legal question or to find the information that best meets your needs. This is why we advise against dropping in to the office and instead encourage you to call or email ahead with your request.

No. Only lawyers and notaries can provide legal advice or counsel. Since the Clinic is operated by law students, and not lawyers, we are only able to provide free legal information. If you need legal advice or representation, we can refer you to organizations that may better serve your needs

 


Townshippers’ would like to acknowledge the invaluable contributions of  Josée Chartier and Liliane Normand from the Law Faculty at the Université de Sherbrooke, who work very hard each year to find that “perfect” law student for our community.
