How To Get On The Roster
For lawyers to be considered for membership on the LRCY roster they must:
- Be active members in good standing with the Law Society of Alberta
- Have practiced in the area of Family Law/Child Protection for a minimum of five (5) years
- Be willing to provide legal representation according to the expectations and service standards as identified in LRCY policy
- Submit a letter of interest, resume and references
- Provide any additional information requested by the LRCY Manager or Director
Currently, LRCY is not accepting new roster lawyers. Special consideration may be given if the lawyer:
- Resides and practices in a rural or remote community
- Has extensive legal experience in child protection matters
- Has extensive experience working with and/or representing young people
- Has extensive experience working with Aboriginal children, families and communities
- Has special skills including:
- Specialization in Aboriginal law
- Specialization in immigration law
- Speaks more than one language
If a lawyer meets one or more of the above considerations, a roster application may be considered.
If considered, lawyers will be asked to participate in a panel interview, involving an LRCY Mentor Lawyer, a young person and an LRCY staff member.
Lawyers who are successful through the interview process must complete an application form, Child Intervention Record Check and a Criminal Record Check with Vulnerability Sector.
