Thanks for your help in 2004

The Benchers would like to thank and congratulate all those in the profession and the legal community who volunteered their time and energy to the Law Society in 2004. Whether serving as members of committees, task forces or working groups, as PLTC guest instructors or authors, as practice reviewers, practice supervisors, conduct reviewers, fee mediators, event panelists or advisors on special projects, volunteers are critical to the success of the Law Society and its work.

Over the past year, the Society has enjoyed the support and contributions of over 500 Life Bencher and non-Bencher volunteers, all of whom deserve acknowledgement.

 
 

Remembering Natasha Edgar (1970-2004)

The Law Society’s Disability Research Working Group notes with sadness the passing of one of its members, Natasha Edgar, on December 31, 2004. A passionate advocate for people with disabilities throughout her university days, Ms. Edgar articled with the British Columbia Public Interest Advocacy Centre and was called to the bar in 2003. In the two years that she served on the Working Group, she helped steer the project that resulted in the Lawyers with Disabilities: Overcoming Barriers to Equality report, published in 2004. In addition to her work with the Law Society, Ms. Edgar was a member of the CBA Equality Committee and president of the Tetra Development Society of North America, a non-profit society dedicated to the development of special adaptive devices for people with disabilities.

Her colleagues, including those on the Disability Research Working Group, will miss Natasha and offer sincere condolences to her family and friends.
