The Great Lawyer Reboot:
Building Blocks to an Accessible, Innovative, and Inclusive Legal Practice

LEAD SPONSOR
Lawyers Financial

The practice of law has experienced fundamental shifts over the last few years. Legal technology is being adopted at unprecedented speeds, workplace expectations are transitioning toward greater choice and flexibility, and renewed efforts are being undertaken to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion both within the profession and in the context of access to justice.

 From June 6th to the 9th, join the Canadian Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Section for their first virtual Symposium, where we will explore a future legal practice that is accessible, innovative, and inclusive.

Town Hall – Inclusive by Design: Future Legal Workspaces+

Young lawyers are seeking meaningful careers that align with their social, economic, and environmental values.
