Coffee in the times of COVID

In May 2020, the Section joined with the Law Students Section to launch Coffee in the Times of COVID — weekly gatherings of small groups of young lawyers and law students to discuss a topic of common interest, led by a designated facilitator. Participants talk about the impact of COVID-19 on their personal and professional lives as well as the areas of law that matter most to them. Sessions to date have ranged in topics from law & technology to remote working to articling tips and tricks, and more.

We are looking for additional facilitators in the Lost Jobs, Well-being and Substantive Law streams, as well as facilitators to conduct sessions in French. If you are interested in hosting a session, please reach out.

Gathering data on the impact of COVID-19 on Young Lawyers

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on everyone’s personal lives, but there is growing anecdotal evidence that its effects may be disproportionately impacting the professional lives of young lawyers and students.

The Section has prepared a brief (1 to 2 minutes) survey to gather further data on this important, ongoing issue. We invite all young lawyers and students to complete the survey, which will greatly help us focus our advocacy efforts on behalf of our members.
