People's Law School

The People's Law School is an independent, non-profit, non-political Society committed to helping people throughout BC gain a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities under the law. By means of speakers, training workshops, publications, theatre, and special events, they provide British Columbians - especially those with particular legal needs - with reliable and impartial information on a range of legal matters.

Through the Legal Speakers Bureau, you can locate a qualified volunteer speaker for a wide range of topics related to legal issues. Speakers include social workers, settlement workers, police officers, lawyers and community members. There is also an ESL Instructor who teaches new immigrants the English language and the basics of Canadian and BC Law.

The Violence Against Minority Women Project is a three year project directed towards helping women who speak languages other than English understand how Canadian law defines domestic violence. The project also aims to increase knowledge about the negative impacts of violence against women within nine ethnocultural communities.

The People's Law School provides a range of publications on legal topics, many of which are available in languages other than English and are free. View a list of PLS Publications.

Publication Languages: English, French, Spanish, Punjabi, Chinese Traditional, Chinese Simplified, Korean, Farsi, Filipino, Swahili, Vietnamese.
