The Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers (British Columbia) Society (“FACL BC”) expresses its warmest congratulations to Jeevyn Dhaliwal, KC on beginning her term as President of the Law Society of British Columbia (the “LSBC”).
Throughout her distinguished career, Jeevyn Dhaliwal, KC has represented clients in workplace immigration law as well as employment law more broadly. She has worked towards building a strong and inclusive legal profession through her numerous professional and community involvements. Jeevyn Dhaliwal, KC served as a Bencher of the LSBC from 2014 to 2015 and 2017 to present, where she is Chair of the Executive Committee and a member of the Audit and Finance Committee. Jeevyn also serves the community as a member of the Federal Judicial Advisory Committee, Director of Creative BC, Instructor at Capilano University, Legal Studies Department and member of the UBC Alumni Awards Selection Committee.
Jeevyn Dhaliwal, KC is the second person of Asian descent to be elected as the President of the LSBC. The first was Anna K. Fung, KC. FACL BC is heartened to see another Asian woman elected to this influential position. Diversity in the LSBC’s Benchers and leadership brings a range of experiences and perspectives to bear and gives a voice to those who have been historically underrepresented, including those in our Asian Canadian community. FACL BC looks forward to continuing to strengthen its relationship with the LSBC under Jeevyn Dhaliwal, KC’s leadership.
