Aboriginal Law Gathering
Law Society President Glen Ridgway, QC, Chair of the Equity and Diversity Advisory Committee Robert Brun, QC and staff policy lawyer Susanna Tam were among the approximately 50 people who attended a gathering for Aboriginal lawyers in Vancouver on September 17. Katrina Harry, a First Nations lawyer, organized the event to foster networks and discussion about supports legal organizations can provide for Aboriginal lawyers.
The Law Society’s participation in the event fits with the Benchers’ strategic objective to retain more Aboriginal lawyers in the legal profession.
