LawLINE was one of the programs offered by the Legal Services Society, the organization that provides legal aid in British Columbia, that were terminated in 1 April 2010 as a result of cuts to the society's budget. LawLINE gave people telephone access to a lawyer for legal information and advice without having to pay for an initial consultation. From my point of view, programs like this are invaluable for people who might only have a small question that can be answered quickly and for people living in the more remote parts of the province; it was a real loss when the program was cut.
To get to the good news, I have heard from a reliable source that LSS may be reviving LawLINE in the next couple of months, or at least some other program that will look a lot like LawLINE. This is very welcome news indeed.
