Annual General Meeting – In a continuation of the Law Society’s efforts to address the TRC Calls to Action, the focus of this year’s CPD Presentation at the Annual General Meeting was the implications of the TRC recommendations for the legal profession. Our panel of the Honorable Judge Gerald Morin, Professor Larry Chartrand and Leanne Bellegarde, Q.C. each approached this question from their unique viewpoints. This presentation was recorded and is available to purchase. To order the recorded version of a Webinar or Seminar materials, please contact Linda Euteneier (CPD Administrator) at 306.569.8242 or email@example.com
At the conclusion of the discussion, cocktails commenced allowing time for networking with panel members, colleagues, and members of the Bar. Dinner and the business matters concluded the evening. The Law Society’s 2017 Annual Report and Financial Statements are available on our website.
