Authorization Request Process

We’re making sure clients are getting the best service at the best price.

When extra hours may be needed for a certificate, our legal experts review the request and determine the appropriate hours required in consultation with the assigned lawyer. This is an important part of our due diligence and financial accountability.

Three ways this LAA initiative helps Albertans.

✓Services
✓Stewardship
✓Time


At Legal Aid Alberta, we help some of Alberta’s most vulnerable citizens. This is an impactful responsibility. By keeping our focus on staying accountable to Albertans, even in the middle of a pandemic, we’re innovating and re-imagining processes to deliver access to justice, making the best use of our expertise and resources, so that we can make the biggest possible impact in our province.
