  • Daniel Gatto

Imagine you have been working at a job you enjoy for a short period of time. Suddenly, you are being fired because the employer has discovered that you have a criminal record. You are unable to find another job that you are qualified for and that does not require a clean record check.

What the CBA has meant to me

  • Claudia Arrieta

I immigrated to Canada from El Salvador in 2010. Very soon after arriving I decided to pursue a career as a lawyer. One of the challenges I faced was not having access to inside knowledge about the process I had to follow – I knew no lawyers, law students or law professionals who could share their journey with me.

Message from a past Chair

  • November 13, 2018
  • Greg von Euw

When I started law school at Thompson Rivers University, I was immediately interested in the CBA. We were all members of the CBA by virtue of being enrolled at TRU; our CBA fees were included in our tuition costs. Over the next year, I started attending a lot of CBA events, and worked hard to teach my fellow students about the CBA, and the important work that it does.
