Every year on March 8, Legal Aid Alberta joins organizations and nations across the world to celebrate International Women’s Day. This year’s theme is Every Woman Counts. At LAA, we are taking time to celebrate how women in the legal profession are making significant contributions to access to justice, standing up for people’s rights, and raising awareness about fairness and equity.
This year recognizes that every woman counts — regardless of age or background. The women of LAA play a critical role in delivering high quality, trustworthy legal services to Albertans in need, whether it’s a family going through divorce, a child welfare case, or someone at a disadvantage involved in the criminal justice system.
Women have a significant footprint across LAA. They represent clients in court, provide legal and administrative support services behind the scenes, and work hard to ensure quality, timely services in our busy Contact Centre. They are people you can count on.
Here are few highlights from the past year that demonstrate the dedication, knowledge, and achievements of women at LAA.
