Johnstone award was presented to Theresa McDonald Q.C. with a honorable mention to Sameera Sereda, who have both achieved professional excellence in their field and influenced other women to pursue legal careers. In addition, they have supported women in career advancement and opened doors for women lawyers in a variety of job settings that historically were closed to them. Ray Adlington, CBA Vice-President, attended and spoke at the conference about the need for change within the legal profession for women lawyers, and his desire to work with the WLF during his time as President to effect change.
