Coronavirus (COVID-19) Notice
Please be advised the ICLC will be providing legal services only by phone and email until further notice. We are not providing in person services.
The ICLC is working hard to comply with the federal and provincial governments' and public health officials' advice on social distancing. We believe this action is necessary to help ensure the safety, health, and wellness of all. We remain committed to providing the legal support we can right now. We will keep you updated and aim to be as responsive as possible to meet Indigenous peoples' legal needs in the coming days, weeks, and months.
If you have an appointment with any of our student clinicians they will call you at the appointment time scheduled. If you don’t have an appointment at this time, but need legal help please call or email us as noted above and we’ll do our best to assist.
The Indigenous Community Legal Clinic is located in the Downtown Eastside on traditional, ancestral, and unceded Coast Salish territories and exists for two purposes: first, to provide free legal services to the Indigenous community and second, to provide legal education to Allard School of Law students. By participating in the ICLC program, students interested in advocacy, social justice and Indigenous peoples can gain practical experience and make a meaningful contribution to a historically underserved and marginalized community. The ICLC provides students with the opportunity to gain practical hands-on experience managing client files and making court appearances.
