Five Canadian lawyers. Five great reasons to renew.

  • August 09, 2018

Time to refresh and renew!

They say membership has its benefits, and that’s certainly the case when it comes to joining or renewing your membership in the Canadian Bar Association (CBA). More than 36,000 lawyers throughout Canada know firsthand the value of being a CBA member. From career development and networking opportunities to influencing legal policies and the Canadian judicial system, being a member of the CBA means being actively involved in your profession.

Hear from five leading Canadian lawyers on why they choose to renew each year with the CBA. They hail from different regions of Canada and work in different areas of the law. Some are early career lawyers and others are senior partners in major law firms. Regardless, they all share the common goal of safeguarding and advancing the judicial system in this country. And being a CBA member helps them accomplish that goal.
