This website is from People’s Law School, a non-profit society in British Columbia. It explains “unbundled services”, in which people can hire a lawyer for part of a legal matter, depending on what they can afford and where they most want the help. The website was developed with the Unbundling Working Group of Access to Justice BC and funded by the Law Foundation of BC.

About Access to Justice BC

Access to Justice BC is a network of people and organizations connecting with each other to realize a common vision — access to family and civil justice for all British Columbians.

Access to justice means enabling people to avoid, manage and resolve civil and family legal problems and disputes. This vision includes providing people with the information they need to understand the law, and supporting them to resolve their own disputes without having to go to court.

Access to Justice BC sees unbundling as one of several initiatives that support improving access to justice.
