Community Legal Intermediary Training Courses

Introductory Course

The Community Legal Intermediary Training Course (CLI) is a program for individuals who are often called upon to help others in the community with legal problems, whether in the role of a worker, friend or community leader.  The program provides participants with basic knowledge about our laws and legal system, and informs them about the proper role of a legal intermediary.

The program is presented with the help of many talented and dedicated lawyers and other volunteer presenters. Classes for the CLI program run twice a year (if enough interest).

Each class starts at 4:30 pm and ends at 6:00 pm.  The cost of the course is is $150.00, payable in advance. (Registration fees are subject to change).  All classes are held at our office, 301 – 441 Main Street, in Winnipeg.

Next course starts Tuesday, September 15, 2020 (if enough participants)
