reachAbility's Legal Services are unavailable until May 14th, 2018. Please e-mail us in the meantime and we will get back to you as soon as we can once we reopen.
Legal Services are open to all members of the community.
Community Outreach Initiative: A free one-hour information session is presented on a legal topic relevant to persons with disabilities. Organizations interested in hosting an information session, or lawyers or legal scholars interested in volunteering to present their expertise, should contact us at (902) 429-5878.
Legal Referral Service: This connects persons with disabilities or with barriers to assistance to a volunteer lawyer for a free, one-hour consultation. Lawyer consultations are offered throughout the province.
Model Accommodation Policy: Learn more about the model accommodation policy for workplaces. It was developed by reachAbility and the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society to accommodate people with disabilities who work in the legal profession.
If you have any questions about our Legal Services, or any of reachAbility’s programs, contact us at (902) 429-5878. You may also email Legal Services directly at email@example.com.
reachAbility thanks our volunteers from Pro Bono Dalhousie – Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC) for their work in Legal Services, and the Law Foundation of Nova Scotia for their continued support in making this service possible.
