    • Fasken (550 Burrard St #2900) & Zoom

    Have you always been curious about what it is like to work in-house?

    Is the grass really greener on the other side? If you are working in-house, would you like to learn from your peers on how they are able to navigate their work environment?  If you are in private practice, how should you work with in-house counsel?

    Whatever the reason, come learn more about in-house life at: Behind the Curtain: Working In-House.

    This event will feature a panel of in-house lawyers from different areas of practice:

    • Steven Ngo (Rivian)
    • Maria Kim-Bautista (Population Data BC)
    • Karim Amlani (Hootsuite)

      Hayley Ha (Vancouver Airport Authority) and Patrick Chou (Premium Brands Holdings Corporation) will moderate the panel. We are holding the panel at Fasken's downtown office, where you can mix and mingle with attendees over refreshments.

      If you cannot attend in person, you are welcome to join us online through Zoom here: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82334819461?pwd=MHhqN1FzRzNFT1NHMVNCWWFibDFuQT09

      This session is eligible for 1.0 hr of CPD credits. 

      FACL BC would like to thank Fasken for their kind support and sponsorship of this event.

      • Cypress Mountain Hollyburn Nordic Area

      Come and join us for a beautiful snowshoe stroll at Cypress Mountain Resort on Saturday, April 1 at 9:00 AM. All are welcome, so feel free to bring your partner, friends and/or family along with you! Please note that FACL BC will not be responsible for arranging transportation to and from Cypress.

      FACL BC will be meeting up at the snowshoe rental building in the Nordic Area. This will be a unique opportunity to get to know your FACL BC community in person while experiencing the beautiful winter landscape of Hollyburn Mountain.

      To participate, you will need to:

      1. Register your attendance in this Google form, so we know you’re coming!
      2. Buy a trail ticket here for a snowshoe ticket ($20 before tax) or a snowshoe ticket and snowshoes rental combination ($38 before tax), and complete any waivers required by Cypress. 

      Mountain activities in North Vancouver sell out quickly, so if you are interested in this event, we recommend purchasing a ticket directly through Cypress and registering with us as soon as possible!

      Note: When pre-booking tickets online for the first time, it is required that you purchase an RFID card for $2.50 in addition to your ticket. The RFID is a reloadable card that allows you to load lift tickets or passes straight on to the card. This is a one-time fee and can be re-activated in future seasons. For more information, click here.

      Attendees will also be invited to join a post-snowshoe/lunch social

      • Location: The Village Taphouse, Park Royal Mall
      • Time: 1:30 PM (reservation under Akash)

      Other FACL BC members are welcome to attend the restaurant portion of the event only. 

      Please note that this event will be taking place rain-or-shine—please dress accordingly!

      • 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
      • Smith's Pub (777 Courtney St, Victoria BC)

      FACL BC presents this community debut of our award-winning documentary, But I Look Like a Lawyer. Please join us for a screening of this 33-minute documentary, followed by a mixer where the public and members of the bar can engage with the Pan-Asian legal community in Victoria. Refreshments will be available. 

      • When: April 27, 2023 | 5:30PM - 7:30PM
      • Where: Smith's Pub (777 Courtney St, Victoria BC) 
      • Tickets: $20 for FACL BC members | $25 for non-FACL BC members

      But I Look Like a Lawyer shares stories of the discrimination, stereotyping and bias experienced by members of the Pan-Asian legal community. It aims to increase intercultural awareness and competency, and to surface the complexity of the historical, socio-economic and colonial aspects of these real lived experiences.

      You do not need a legal background to appreciate and enjoy this thought-provoking documentary, which has been widely screened in law firms and law schools all over Canada. Recently, it was selected for screening at the 26th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival.
