Local chapters of national organizations


Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers (CARL)

CARL is the Robson Hall student chapter of the Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers (CARL). Our objective is to introduce students to immigration and refugee law from a broad perspective, human rights issues that arise in this field and the practical skills that can set you up for success as a professional that supports migrants and their families.

CARL provides great opportunities to meet fellow students that are passionate about migration in Canada and its governing policies. Members often enjoy debate about contemporary issues and engaging with others that share their passion. In addition to networking with your peers, CARL members will have opportunities to connect with lawyers working in the field, as well as the organizations that support their good work.

Regular attendance at events is not required, although encouraged. We welcome people to attend events/meetings whenever possible. To learn more about immigration and refugee law and connect with the legal community, join our CARL chapter!

Pro Bono Students Canada

Pro Bono Students Canada

Pro Bono Students Canada is a national pro bono organization with Chapters at 22 law schools across the country. Our mission is to provide free legal support to people and communities facing barriers to justice. Each year, about 1,500 PBSC volunteers provide approximately 120,000 hours of free legal services to over 400 organizations, courts and tribunals across the country. PBSC matches law student volunteers (“Student Volunteers”) to Partner Organizations to provide free legal support to people and communities facing barriers to justice. By exposing law students to the value of Pro Bono service, PBSC aims to encourage the next generation of lawyers to make pro bono service an everyday part of their practice. Volunteering with PBSC is open to first, second and third year law students.

Volunteers at the University of Manitoba chapter have gained valuable legal experience in clinical settings, on research projects, and as legal interns throughout the Academic Year. With returning partners including the Community Legal Education Association and the Legal Help Centre, and new partners including JusticeTrans, we look forward to another remarkable year.

PBSC Volunteer Placements are posted in September. These placements detail the type of project, who the project is for, an overview of the project, and the areas of law the placement engages with. Applications are sent out with the postings and are due in September as well, with placements starting in October. Exact dates change year to year, but PBSC will email all students prior to each important recruitment date as well as post on our social media as well as the MLSA Facebook page. Please feel free to email any time throughout the year for more information in regards to recruitment and volunteering with PBSC.
