Alberta Law Line is a telephone based program providing free legal information, referrals, and advice province-wide. The legal advice services are offered for specific categories of legal problems and only to those who qualify under the financial eligibility guidelines.
Alberta Law Line was established in 2004 and officially recognized as a permanent program in December 2005 after an independent evaluation.
The Alberta Law Line was launched by Legal Aid Alberta to fill gaps in legal services available to Albertans and help them overcome barriers to access such as delay, lack of awareness or understanding of the legal system, and affordability.
