Mental Health and Class Actions Practice: A Fireside Chat with the Honourable George R. Strathy 

May 30, 2023
Toronto ON

OBA Class Actions Law PROGRAM | 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Join the OBA Class Actions Section and Torys LLP for a special evening with the Honourable George R. Strathy to discuss the ways in which mental health challenges are affecting the legal community, including unique issues for class actions practitioners. Given the prevalence of mental health challenges facing both new and seasoned litigators alike, this discussion will bring together litigators and members of the class actions bar at all stages in practice to address the stigma surrounding mental health, to learn about tools to help manage the difficulties that litigators often face, and to discuss ways in which leaders in the legal community can bring about positive changes to dismantle the mental health obstacles that impede a healthy and successful litigation practice. As our former Chief Justice of Ontario, a mental health advocate, and a prestigious leader within the legal community, we are honoured to have Justice Strathy join us to share his insights on this important topic.
The event will be followed by a cocktail reception where you can connect with your colleagues and fellow members of the class actions bar.

*Space is limited, register now to reserve your spot!
