Lawyer Competence: Reconciliation and Working with Indigenous Peoples

The legal profession, along with the rest of Canadian society, continues to grapple with Canada’s history of colonialism and the impact on Indigenous peoples. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission set out Calls to Action that include cultural competence training for lawyers. This panel will explore the difference between mandatory education requirements and ethical obligations of competence in this area, while examining what has been achieved and what is left to be done.
