A caseworker will contact you to further discuss your needs and identify the relevant legal questions.
Your caseworker will do some research and draft a legal memo that answers all legal your questions.
Your caseworker will deliver your memo and you'll be good to go!
What are the steps for starting a business?
We are currently working on a blog post that holds all the answers to this question. Until then, please feel free to book a consultation to receive a memo on this topic.
Can you provide legal advice? Can you be my lawyer?
Because Compass is run by volunteer law students, who do not have a license to practice law, we are unable to provide legal advice or act as lawyers. Law students are not members of the Barreau of Quebec.
However, we would be glad to refer our clients to lawyers if needed.
What is the difference between legal information and legal advice?
Legal information is general knowledge about the state of the law, whereas legal advice is an interpretation of the state of the law as it applies to a particular situation. Here at Compass, we can only provide legal information.
Does Compass offer help outside of Canada?
No. As the legal clinic is set up in Canada, our caseworkers can only provide legal information related to the Canadian market. However, if you have questions related to your case that deviate into other jurisdictions, some caseworkers will agree to take this on.
