* indicates required

The Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers (British Columbia) Society is creating a mini-documentary on the discrimination, stereotyping and bias experienced by members of the Pan-Asian legal community, from law students to senior members of the bar. 

The documentary will premiere in Fall 2021. 

  • Our aim is to increase intercultural awareness and competency within the profession, while providing a platform for the Pan-Asian Legal Community to share their experiences. 

  • We also wish to highlight and bring renewed attention to the original But I Was Wearing a Suit documentary (“BIWWAS”) (and its Part II), spearheaded by a group of leaders in the Indigenous legal community, including Justice Ardith (Walpetko We’dalx) Walkem, who has generously provided guidance for our initiative. 

  • We believe that this companion documentary will identify commonalities, and highlight the unique and distinct experiences of bias and discrimination that Pan-Asian lawyers face in practice. 

  • We hope to continue the dialogue. Our goal is to strive for change and to recognize and eliminate unconscious biases and discrimination within the legal community.
