Volunteers invited to update model workplace policies

Gavin HumeGavin Hume, QC, Chair

The Women in the Legal Profession Task Force invites lawyers to volunteer their help in revising the Law Society’s model workplace policies.

The Law Society offers a number of model policies designed to help law firms achieve equity and diversity in the workplace. Most of these policies were drafted in the early 1990s, and the Law Society is seeking lawyers with experience and expertise in relevant fields to volunteer their time to update the policies and to help the Task Force identify any other policies that may be suitable for distribution.

If you are interested in assisting in this project, please contact Kuan Foo, Policy and Legal Services staff lawyer, at the Law Society office at 604 443-5727 or kfoo@lsbc.org.

The Women in the Legal Profession Task Force, which is overseeing this project, would like to thank in advance all those who offer their assistance. The Task Force helps the Benchers on issues relating to women in the profession.
