  • Supporting leading edge research into Alternative Dispute Resolution.
  • Ensuring the CBA was able to provide valuable input into the re-codification of the Criminal Code.
  • Funding the work of the Systems of Civil Justice Task Force to make the justice system more efficient, more accountable and more accessible for all Canadians.
  • Working with Reach Canada to enhance access to mental health law for the deaf by explaining mental health acts in Canada and the various legal forms used in applying mental health legislation.
  • Publishing useful booklets for clients and for lawyers, which serve as a guide to foster mutually beneficial client-lawyer relationships.
  • Supporting public education on judicial independence through videos and courses for the general public.
  • Studying how best to protect the interests of lawyers in Canada’s tort liability system.
  • Developing a practical guide to coping with conflicts of interest in the wake of R. and Neil.
