November 2009: the first General Meeting is held. The membership in the Chapter increased to 20 students.
2001-2002: They have worked to develop a partnership with a Sierra Leone legal clinic called the Lawyers Centre for Legal Assistance (LAWCLA). LAWCLA is the only pro bono human rights center in existence in Sierra Leone and was established with the objective of providing free legal assistance to indigent members of Sierra Leone society. LAWCLA represents clients before normal courts in Sierra Leone as well as before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission established expressly to address issues brought about by the civil war. The UBC CLAIHR students have helped develop a website for LAWCLA, and are now working hard to secure funds in order to send two interns to work at the clinic in Sierra Leone during the summer of 2002.
