Join the Conversation (We’ll Face Zoom Fatigue Together)

New Coffee in the Times of COVID cohort stream coming up:

Cohorts will engage a group of up to 20 young lawyers and law students in regular bi-weekly sessions facilitated by a team of lawyers from partner Sections of the Canadian Bar Association.

A Good Lawyer Can Have a Good Life and Be a Good Person
May 27 – July 22, 2021 – 2pm ET
Presented in collaboration with the CBA Labour & Employment Law Section

Engage in facilitated discussion about how being a lawyer can enhance your life without consuming it! Sessions will explore topics such as the different practice models available to young lawyers, how to navigate the profession and your personal life, and ultimately, how to have a "good" legal career as defined by your own standards of success.
