Diversity on the Bench (Part 2)

The CBA has added its voice to a growing chorus of equality-seeking groups in the legal profession that are encouraging the federal government to ensure that the federal bench (including the Supreme Court of Canada, Federal Court of Appeal, Federal Court, as well as the Courts of Appeal and Superior Courts of the provinces and territories) reflects the diversity of the population it serves.

This session follows the formal panel presentation, Diversity on the Bench part 1, presented on Monday September 26, 2022. 

This session will build on the overview of the federal judicial appointment process and the key components of a successful application. It will provide the opportunity for participants to interact with the panelists and our expert guest speakers on the following topics of discussion: 

Demystifying the judicial appointment process and leveraging lived experiences as a diverse candidate

Resume building and the JAC's perspective
