Advocacy  The most important thing we do. The struggle to protect our rights and freedoms here in BC persists and TLABC has been a driving force on many issues of public interest. The public's ability to access justice is often threatened by legislative changes and ensuring the courthouse doors remain open for every citizen of BC is an ongoing goal of the Trial Lawyers Association of BC.
