Legal Aid BC systems are undergoing an upgrade June 23 – 24. Staff will only be proceeding with matters that require immediate attention during this time. If your matter is not urgent, please call the following week. Your patience is appreciated.

Lawyer Portal outage and payment schedule

The Lawyer Portal will be shut down leading up to the June 27 launch of the upgraded portal.

The Lawyer Portal will be unavailable from 10 pm on Wednesday, June 22 to Sunday, June 26 so the system’s information can be migrated to the new site.  During this time lawyers will not have access to the Lawyer Portal and will not be able to review contracts or submit invoices or authorization requests.

All invoices and authorizations will need to be submitted by 10 pm on June 22, including those in drafts. Drafts will not be migrated to the new system.

The payment schedule will not be disrupted but lawyers cannot generate or submit invoices during the portal outage.

Lawyer Support will be available to provide support during the outage, including help with contracts or client information. You can contact Lawyer Support by phone at 604-601-6155 or 1-888-401-6206, or by email at
