The Stand Informed program offers three hours of free, confidential legal advice to sexual assault victims
A non-profit law society is offering free legal advice to anyone in B.C. who has experienced sexual assault.
On Tuesday, the Community Legal Assistance Society launched its Stand Informed program, offering three hours of free, confidential legal advice to victims of sexual assault.
The free legal advice is available to anyone regardless of age, gender and income level and whether or not the sexual assault was reported to police. It is also available to those who are uncertain if what they experienced was sexual assault.
Jennifer Khor, project manager and supervising lawyer with the Community Legal Assistance Society, said the program will fill a gaping hole in legal assistance available to B.C. residents.
