The 2009 Vancouver Law Day open house was held on Saturday, April 25, 2009 from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm at the Vancouver Public Library at 350 West Georgia Street. Law Day events included a public forum, a mock trial, displays and demonstrations from legal organizations, and free law classes that were hosted by the People’s Law School.
On Saturday, April 25, 2009, the Canadian Bar Association British Columbia Branch (CBABC) held its province-wide “Dial-A-Lawyer” as part of Law Week. Lower Mainland residents were invited to call 604.687.3221 between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm to speak with a lawyer for up to 15 minutes at no cost.
This year in addition to supporting Law Week activities in British Columbia, by providing funds for community events through which people can learn more about the justice system, the CBABC donated all net proceeds from the Fun Run to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. Donations of non-perishable food items were also accepted at the Fun Run.
