About - LawNow Magazine


LawNow’s mission is to relate law to life.

LawNow provides unique insights into changing social conditions by examining and reflecting on life issues from the perspective of the law. By providing credible and readable legal information and analysis, LawNow helps Canadians understand the roles law plays in society and how it affects their lives. Interpretations and commentary are intended to make meaningful contributions to readers’ own lives and to the democratic life of their communities and the country.

Each issue of LawNow features articles around a feature theme as well as a special report on a current topic. Columns with practical applications to everyday life round out each issue.

LawNow relies on volunteer contributors to provide thoughtful and engaging content. Our contributors include lawyers, professors, journalists, students, accountants and more.

LawNow is published six times per year by the Legal Resource Centre of Alberta Ltd., operating as the Centre for Public Legal Education Alberta.
