The Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers (FACL) British Columbia is excited to host a virtual Fireside Chat with the Honourable Arif Virani, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada. Together, we will delve into the crucial topic of equality, diversity, and inclusion on the benches of the BC Supreme Court and Court of Appeal.
During this discussion, Minister Virani will detail the superior court judicial appointment process and shed light on the barriers and issues potentially hindering greater representation among BC's judges. Together, we hope to explore potential solutions to address this pressing matter. The underrepresentation of Asian and other communities within the judiciary is an important concern that warrants attention, and this event aims to foster a meaningful dialogue surrounding the initiatives and ideas being discussed within the Ministry of Justice to promote diversity on the bench.
By engaging in an open and constructive dialogue, we hope to uncover innovative ideas and practical solutions to help build a more diverse and inclusive judiciary that reflects the rich tapestry of British Columbia's population. Don't miss this exceptional opportunity to gain valuable insights and join the conversation surrounding equality, diversity, and inclusion on the benches of the BC Supreme Court and Court of Appeal.
This course is approved for 1.0 hour of CPD credits in British Columbia. ___________________________________________________
