The Panel Program consists of a roster of lawyers who agree to provide full representation pro bono services. Following a telephone or in-person appointment at one of the free legal clinics in Saskatchewan, individuals may be referred by a Clinic Lawyer to the Panel Program for further assistance. PBLS facilitates these referrals, provided the referred matter matches the expertise, capacity, and availability of a volunteer lawyer participating in the Panel Program.

Lawyers will not charge hourly fees for their services under the Panel Program, however, clients are still responsible for disbursements and any costs associated with a court action. Panel Lawyers will try to reduce these disbursement costs as much as possible. Panel Lawyers may also, in appropriate cases, file for a Needy Persons Certificate or apply to the CBA Disbursement Fund to offset these costs.
