Welcome to Rise Women's Legal Centre

We are a community legal centre providing accessible legal services that are responsive to the unique needs of self-identifying women. Rise clients are often caught in the gap between being ineligible for legal services yet unable to afford legal representation. We offer unbundled legal services in the area of family law, and can also assist with some immigration matters.

Rise came into being as the result of a partnership between the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia and West Coast Legal Education and Action Fund. Many of the services offered at Rise are provided by upper-year law students from the Allard School of Law, under the close supervision of practising lawyers. We also offer legal support to family law advocates, transition house workers, and settlement workers.
