Media Opportunities- interviews, Legal Observer office visits and ride-alongs:

  • Interviews with executive and staff: BCCLA spokespeople will be fielding requests for interviews throughout the Olympic period, based on availability.  To schedule an interview, please contact our media contact at either media@bccla.org or by calling 604-630-9755.  Interviews can be provided in English, French, Hindi, Urdu, German and Korean.
  • Interviews with Legal Observers: The BCCLA is providing access to our Legal Observers in the office and as they are on the field. However, due to the focused nature of their work, we ask that media not engage our reporters unsolicited. Contact media@bccla.org or call 604-630-9755 and we will arrange a time and observer team for you to talk with. Legal Observers speak a number of languages and we will attempt to match foreign-language outlets to an observer who speaks the same language.

Media resources—press releases, videos, photos, and more:

Press releases will be available on the BCCLA website.

Alternatively, media are invited send an email with the subject ”Subscribe” to media@bccla.org to be added our media list. Every evening we will be sending out a press bulletin outlining events and incidents we will be discussing at the next morning press conference. We will also be sending out breaking news bulletins as they arise.

The Legal Observer Program will be making video, photos, and other materials available online under a Creative Commons license:
