Rise is a community legal clinic based in Vancouver, British Columbia. We offer unbundled family law services to individuals who self-identify as women and who can't get legal assistance anywhere else.
Legal services are provided by senior law students from the University of British Columbia’s Peter A. Allard School of Law who enroll in our externship program. Student clinicians work full-time at Rise for one semester and receive academic credit for their participation in the program.
Our student clinicians are trained and supervised by Rise's full-time staff lawyers while they gain hands-on experience, learn practical clinical legal skills, and provide legal services to women in BC who could not otherwise receive legal assistance.
Rise is a privately-run legal clinic, funded by grants and private donations.
Women in BC need Rise, and Rise needs you.
