Equity Ombudsperson

To help stop workplace discrimination and encourage equitable workplace practices, the Law Society offers BC law firms the services of an Equity Ombudsperson. The Ombudsperson, Anne Bhanu Chopra, confidentially assists anyone who works in a firm in resolving concerns over possible discrimination, and assists law firms in preventing discrimination and promoting a healthy work environment.

The Equity Ombudsperson is independent of the Law Society and reports only anonymous statistical data to the Society.

Law firm staff, law students, articled students, lawyers, human resource administrators and managing partners in law firms are all welcome to contact the Equity Ombudsperson.

Ms. Chopra can be reached on her confidential, dedicated telephone line at (604) 687-2344 or by email to achopra@novus-tele.net.
