YPLEA operates the Yukon Law Line, a free legal information service. The Law Line is staffed by persons knowledgeable about the law. It is intended to help callers by providing legal information. The Law Line is intended to help callers to identify the legal issues confronting them and to give them information about how to go about resolving those legal issues. The Law Line does not give legal advice or representation and it does not provide legal services such as drafting documents!
