Law Society participation in Law Week

Gavin Hume, QC at the CBC studiosThe Law Society continued its annual sponsorship of Law Week, which ran throughout BC from April 6 to 27, 2011 with the theme Access to Justice: The Changing Face of Law. The Law Society focused this year on drawing attention to the theme through a series of media interviews conducted by President Gavin Hume, QC (pictured at the CBC studio with Jamie Maclaren of Access Pro Bono). He spoke about the state of access to the justice system in BC and the Law Society’s work to improve access to legal services. Hume was interviewed by CBC Radio’s Almanac program, CKNW’s Charles Adler program, the Roy Green Show, Coast to Coast and general news broadcasts, Victoria’s the Q and CFAX and Kamloops’ CKNL.

Also in conjunction with Law Week, the Law Society launched a new Access to Legal Services webpage with links to video clips that have been posted to the Law ­Society’s new YouTube channel.

Law Week is organized by the Canadian Bar Association, BC Branch.
