2018-2019 Projects are HERE!!!

2018-2019 PBSC-UVic Project List is here! We’ve been working hard to diversify and expand our project offerings to provide an opportunity for everyone to get involved in a way that suits their interests. This year we are partnering with some new organizations including the MS Society of Canada, the West Coast Prison Justice Society, and Breakwater Law, and welcoming back partner organizations such as RAVEN Trust, Ready to Rent BC, PEERS Victoria, and West Coast Environmental Law. What You Need to Know About Volunteering: Volunteers make a commitment to work on their projects for 3-5 hrs/week during the school year. December and April are break months, giving you a chance to focus on exams. To provide guidance and support, all projects are supervised by the Program Coordinators, the organization, and the assigned lawyer supervisor. We also try to make a Research Assistant available to all students. We want to produce high-quality projects and ask students for a high degree of communication, organization, and professionalism. To achieve this and to help you get started, there is mandatory training for all volunteers on the following dates: General Volunteer Training Session will be hosted on Wednesday, September 26 from 12-1:20 pm in Rm. 158 WestlawNext
