Welcome to Rise Women’s Legal Centre
We are a community legal centre serving all individuals who self-identify as women.
We are currently providing services primarily in the area of family and child protection law but please check back as we hope to expand our services in the coming months. Our legal services are provided by upper year law students from the University of British Columbia who receive training and supervision from on-site lawyers.
Our office is located on unceded Coast Salish Territory at 201–456 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC. You can reach us at (604) 451-7447 or [email protected].
