Five-Year Report on the REAL Program

July 7, 2014 - The REAL initiative is a very valuable project jointly supported by the CBABC and the Law Society of British Columbia. It seeks to address the lack of legal representation in regional BC and to help in placing law students in articling positions by organizing, funding, and recruiting for summer positions for law students in communities that are currently underserved or that have a population of lawyers approaching retirement. They have just released their five-year report. It is impressive! Please find it here.

Michael Litchfield, director of UVic’s Business Law Clinic, is also the Project Director for REAL.  Congratulations, Michael, on such a record of accomplishment.
