We are proud to announce and promote two projects recently announced by Lisa Silver that have been established to honour long-time CBA’er and former co-chair of the Criminal Justice South Section Markham Silver Q.C. 

The first project is the H. Markham Silver, Q.C. Criminal Justice Fund. This fund will be awarded to an outgoing student at the University of Calgary Law, who has shown a continued commitment to criminal justice, is in financial need of the award, and will be articling in criminal law at either a criminal law firm, legal clinic or not for profit organization. The website and details for this fund, and detailed biography of Markham, can be found here: https://engage.ucalgary.ca/MarkhamSilver

To officially launch this Fund, a group of Markham’s friends and colleagues from the CDLA (Criminal Defence Lawyers’ Association) along with the CBA Alberta and CBA Criminal Justice Section will be honouring Markham on June 2 at the Calgary Petroleum Club (McMurray Room) from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Everyone is welcome to attend. The CDLA will be sponsoring a Champagne Toast to Markham. The CBA Alberta and the CBA Criminal Justice Section will be sponsoring some light appetizers at this event. 

The second project is sponsored by Lisa and her children, Josh and Rebecca. The H. Markham Silver, Q.C. Memorial Lecture in Criminal Justice will be a yearly event in which the designated speaker will present a lecture on criminal justice. The speaker will also conduct an informal seminar with students involved in criminal justice either through student legal aid or the criminal justice seminar. This will ensure that the mentoring of students, which Markham was dedicated to, will continue. The first lecturer will be Markham’s articling principal, mentor, and friend, John Rosen. For those who don’t know John, his bio is here: https://rosenlaw.ca/index.php/staff-member/john-rosen/. The lecture will be on October 13, 2022, at the law school from noon to 2:00 PM. More details to come.
