The Golden Women’s Resource Centre is welcoming a new face for the summer. Jenni Lee Campbell, a law student at the University of Victoria will be offering legal advice to women until the end of August.
“I saw the job listing and was excited about the work the Women’s Centre does. I didn’t know anything about Golden, I knew it was in the mountains but I had never been in the mountains before. When I stepped off the Greyhound bus I was knocked over. It’s gorgeous.”
Campbell will be working the regular hours of the GWRC and will be available by drop-in or appointment.
“I’m a legal resource person for the Women’s Centre. I help women with any legal problem.”
Although Campbell can not represent someone in a court of law, she is able to give legal advice to those who can not afford a lawyer.
“Legal issues can be overwhelming, so my role here is to help explain the process, do research, and help women with things like filling out court forms, dealing with administrative tribunals, or accessing resources.”
Campbell will be returning to University in September to begin her third year in the Faculty of Law. Between the second and third year of a Law Degree, students are expected to work in the legal field. Campbell’s position here in Golden was a perfect fit with her interests and she looks forward to helping the women of Golden.
If you would like to meet with Campbell, drop in to the Women’s Centre during regular hours or make an appointment by calling 250-344-5317 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
