Roster Events

CASE Information and Training Sessions

The legal needs of Albertans have always been and will continue to be the primary focus of innovation at Legal Aid Alberta. 

LAA’s Client Access and Service Enhancements (CASE) will significantly improve the client experience and access to legal aid.

Each of these enhancements is powerful on its own. However, the combined impact of CASE will ensure that everyone who interacts with LAA has the most positive experience possible.

This includes a seamless application process, minimizing the need for clients to explain their legal situation more than once and ensuring all clients, especially those in rural areas, can choose their preferred lawyer without barriers.

As a roster lawyer, you are invited to attend a virtual session to ensure you are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary for seamless adoption. Most of this session will focus on Client Gateway, which is currently being rolled out for criminal matters. Additional enhancements to the Client Gateway process, including access for family lawyers and clients, are planned for the future. 

Key Takeaways: 

  • Overview of expanded travel policies for certificates of all levels, province-wide.
  • Using DC Portal to check client application status in real-time and to access the Client Gateway Form.
  • Overview of financial information now captured in Client Gateway.
