On June 2, 2016, the Calgary Bar Association presented the inaugural Great Bar Band Battle at Flames Central. It was a fundraiser for the benefit of Calgary Legal Guidance (“CLG”). Carbert Waite LLP is proud to have been a key sponsor.
Six bands comprised of talented lawyers and other members of the Alberta legal community competed for the coveted Bar Band Battle Championship Cup. A panel of three sitting members of Alberta’s judiciary selected the winner. The event was a lot of fun and a great success! More than 400 tickets were sold and over $15,500 was donated.
CLG is a non-profit access to justice organization that, through its dedicated volunteers, staff lawyers and advocates, provides assistance to thousands of people every year. CLG offers volunteer clinics at its downtown office and at a number of outreach clinics targeted to immigrants and indigenous persons as well as other vulnerable populations. CLG also has a number of in-house programs including Homeless Outreach, Social Benefits Advocacy, the Immigration Program, the Elder Law Program and a Family Law Program that focusses on victims of domestic violence.
