Thank you to everyone who participated!

The Advice-a-thon is a pro bono event where lawyers sign up for one or more hours to provide summary legal advice to persons living with low income.  In addition to the legal clinics that will be running, we will have music,hot dogs and snacks, all hosted by volunteers and staff. 

Before the event, lawyers will collect pledges to support their volunteerism at ECLC and the programs and services that ECLC delivers. All the funds raised through this event by sponsors and participants go towards our programs and services.
