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.
