We welcome you to join us as a member or attend any of our upcoming events.
Want to learn more about different legal practice areas and how to determine the right fit for you? There is no better way than speaking with lawyers immersed in those areas to gain some insight into their respective practices - and we are pleased to bring you an interactive evening to do just that! Back by popular demand, we invite you to sign up for the 3rd annual FACL BC Mentorship Roundtable and Mixer.
This event is often well-attended by law students, junior lawyers, and anyone else looking to explore their options. All are welcome!
How It Works: On registration, you will be asked to select 3 practice areas of interest. During the event, you will then be rotating through 3 informal conversation groups led by lawyers practicing in each of your chosen areas. Come with your questions, as this will be a great opportunity to feed your curiosity.
When: Thursday, February 20, 2020 at 5:15pm
Where: McCarthy Tétrault LLP (Suite 2400 - 745 Thurlow Street , Vancouver, BC)
Post-event refreshments to follow at a location to be determined, with attendees to cover own costs.
Cost: Graciously sponsored by our preferred partner in diversity, McCarthy Tétrault LLP
