  • November 13, 2018

Sabrina Bandali and Audrey RamsayThis year’s recipient of the National Sections Council Award of Excellence is the Women Lawyers Forum. The CBA National Section Award of Excellence,  presented annually, recognizes the outstanding contribution of a national Section in providing service to members and furthering the objectives of the Association.

The Women Lawyers Forum was awarded this prize for 2017-2018 in recognition of its role as a fundamental section within the CBA community. With a mandate to promote and enhance the status of women in the legal profession, the WLF provides a space for meaningful discussion and connection on a national level. Based on its mandate, the WLF has a unique perspective on all aspects of the justice system: from laws and regulations that are drafted and enacted, to the judiciary, and to the practise of law in Canada. Through its continued activity and the cross-Canada growth of the section, the WLF is an active and vocal part of the CBA and the legal profession in the continual pursuit of equity, inclusivity and gender parity.
