On November 1, 2019, Pro Bono Ottawa will rename the Ottawa Law Help Centre in memory of the late David W. Scott. A driving force in the creation of the Ottawa centre, it was David’s greatest wish that Ontarians would always have access to justice regardless of their ability to pay.

The David W. Scott Centre for Justice will honour his legacy. Open Monday to Friday, staff and volunteer lawyers help unrepresented litigants navigate the civil courts by providing summary legal advice, legal drafting assistance, and duty counsel representation.

But we need your help to sustain David’s legacy. Join us as we raise funds to keep the centre open in 2020 and beyond.

Ways to give: Make a monthly or a one time contribution. Or, designate a portion of your United Way contribution to PBO.
