Legal systems are complex and justice can be elusive for women. The Legal Services and Advocacy Program at Battered Women’s Support Services helps support women through the legal process.

  • The Legal Services and Advocacy Program (LAP) at BWSS provides support, advocacy, information and accompaniment to women who have experienced violence and who are involved in the legal system.
  • LAP provides legal information, research, advocacy and support for battered women in family, child protection, immigration, criminal, civil, and poverty law matters.
  • LAP provides legal information and support over the telephone or in person
  • LAP provides legal workshops and pro-bono legal info sessions for women
  • LAP provides legal representation to women who have multiple barriers and have been denied by Legal Services Society for legal representation
