Looking for a legal opportunity or
a law student volunteer this summer?
UPDATE: LawLinks was established to help connect law students to volunteer opportunities during the tough summer of 2020. As law students are currently preparing to return to school in the fall, we are currently no longer accepting registrations.
LawLinks is a Canadian non-profit initiative that connects passionate law students with organizations seeking
volunteer assistance on a project.
In light of difficulties facing law students and employers amidst COVID-19, many bright law students are eager
to employ their skills, but have been unable to do so. Meanwhile, many law firms, clinics and legal organizations cannot take on new hires, but still have discrete projects they could use help with.
LawLinks helps create legal opportunities by making connections. Our goal is to help provide meaningful experiences during this particularly difficult 2020
Since May 2020
Become a volunteer and gain invaluable legal experience on your own schedule. Work virtually to assist law firms, clinics and legal organizations with specific projects, such as conducting legal research, preparing legal information materials, or monitoring changes in the law.
LawLinks operates with the sole goal of helping law students find meaningful experiences.
We are dedicating our own resources, and we do not receive or ask for any financial assistance.
Clinics & Legal Organizations
LawLinks matches you with motivated Canadian law students who are determined to further their experience and who want to provide volunteer assistance on a project.
Submit a project and help provide students with meaningful opportunities to apply their skills.
If you are unsure of how to describe a project, contact us and we would be happy to help.

What Students Say
1L University of Ottawa
Within a short period of time, LawLinks connected me with Right to Play International. Not only am I helping a great non-profit organization during this difficult time, but I am also gaining legal experience in policy and reporting mechanisms. I recommend LawLinks to any law student looking to gain practical and meaningful legal experience during this uncertain period.
1L University of Windsor
I truly enjoyed my experience with LawLinks. Thanks to LawLinks, I was quickly matched with a top immigration lawyer in Toronto to research relevant case law and to co-author an article on the topic of study permit refusals for foreign nationals. I am grateful for having had this opportunity to apply my legal research skills and to gain valuable feedback and guidance from an experienced lawyer in their field.
