Young Lawyers on P.E.I. are volunteering to draft wills for low income Islanders.

The Canadian Bar Association young lawyers’ section and their pro bono committee is announcing what it calls a wills clinic.

The project is running April 11-15 in recognition of National Law Day, celebrated this year on April 14.

“This exciting pro bono initiative is a wonderful way for young lawyers to help Islanders in need,” said Meaghan Hughes, chairwoman of the Canadian Bar Association young lawyers’ section in P.E.I.

The Community Legal Information Association (CLIA) is coordinating the application process.

“CLIA’s recent New Horizons for Seniors outreach project revealed many reasons people have not yet put their affairs in order,” said CLIA president Warren Banks.

Low income Islanders in need of a will are encouraged to contact CLIA for an application form.

Completed forms must be returned by noon on March 25.

For an application form, email CLIA@cliapei.ca or call 902-8920853.
