Lawyer Panels

High quality representation for extremely vulnerable clients.

LAA established three specialized panels of roster lawyers with interest, aptitude and experience representing:

  1. Young people facing criminal charges;
  2. Children in high-conflict parenting matters; and
  3. Complainants and witnesses who have the right to respond to applications in criminal prosecutions. This last type of case usually involves sexual offence trials in which the complainant’s medical or sexual history comes into question.

Creation of these panels increases the quality of representation, allows a select group of staff and roster lawyers to gain more experience in a unique area of practice, and ensures disadvantaged Albertans are represented by lawyers with specialized training and experience.
