the trauma-informed lawyer podcast

CBA is excited to partner with former prosecutor and Indian Residential School adjudicator Myrna McCallum on her new podcast, ‘the trauma-informed lawyer’.

Through inspiring interviews and thoughtful commentary, Myrna McCallum shines a light on a critical competency lawyers often don’t experience in law school. Trauma-informed lawyering is a do-no-further-harm, relational approach to the practice of law which benefits not only clients, but the lawyers and firms supporting these clients.
