Lawyer Referral Service Subsidy
The Student Legal Fund Society is pleased to provide a subsidy of $25 to all registered UBC students as a first step towards receiving professional advice to settle your legal problems. You can learn more about the LRS here. This subsidy is on a refund basis, so you will need to provide the SLFS with a receipt and fill out a brief application before funds can be released to you. You can find the application form below or by visiting our office at 3123-6133 University Blvd, Vancouver, B.C, V6T 1Z1, Canada.
