Over 1.2 Million* times a year, duty counsel lawyers provide help to Canadians.
But many Canadians are unaware of their rights to legal representation – it is as essential to our national well-being as health care. Duty counsel is a crucial service that fulfils our shared belief in access to justice for all Canadians.
In courthouses in every corner of the country, duty counsel lawyers are guiding Canadians through important, life-changing decisions in a system that can seem adversarial, complex, and overwhelming. They are the unsung heroes of our justice system.
Please RSVP to email@example.com by September 3, 2021 and sharer how you'd like to participate.
DATES: November 16 & 17, 2021 (Virtual)
PRICE: $50 (MEMBER); $75 (NON-MEMBER)

"You know, you remind me a lot of myself when I started practising law." While this message is frequently conveyed from senior to junior counsel in positive mentorship scenarios, it’s not a phrase everyone hears. Many of us have a natural and powerful inclination to help those we identify with most, whether that be through shared gender, culture, and/or interests. We recognize that diversity is important, but how do we include, support and serve those in our profession with whom we do not identify? Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion for Litigators program is returning for its fourth year with a focus on the relationship between mentorship and advocacy. In this program, hear from leading litigators and judges from across Canada on how responsible mentorship informs our interactions with our colleagues and clients through a series of practical panel discussions. All participants will then join in structured discussion groups led by experienced counsel to delve deeper into these nuanced and complex topics.
