WATCH A RECORDING OF THE EVENT HERE:
In celebration of Access to Justice Week, join your colleagues for this pivotal session.
It is now apparent that the opportunities and demands facing 21st-century lawyers differ fundamentally from those that preceding generations encountered. Leading these opportunities and demands is the crystallizing crisis in access to justice. We must redefine the knowledge, skills, and attributes required of tomorrow’s and today’s lawyers, equipping them with a new and better set of competencies with which to tackle the Access to Justice problem and every other challenge of this century.
Legal sector analyst Jordan Furlong will deliver a keynote presentation that frames the overarching problem, describes the 21st-century lawyer competence profile and explains how every stakeholder in the legal profession can use these new competencies to help address the access predicament. In the second half of the event, BC lawyers will join Jordan to discuss these developments in current practice.
This event is made possible by the Law Society of BC, CBABC, the Continuing Legal Education Society of BC, the Law Foundation, Courthouse Libraries, BC’s Law Schools, and Access to Justice BC.
