Spotlight: Raminder K. Hayre
Raminder K. Hayre is a lawyer at Soul Counsel and is a member of FACL BC.
1. What is something that not many people know about you?
I grew up as a dancer and also competed in the U.S.A. and Canada. I judged a dance competition in Melbourne when I lived in Australia for law school.
2. How did you first get involved with FACL BC?
I joined as a member in order to be assigned a mentor. I am now involved as a general member and often mentor students. I have also been happy to speak on a panel for FACL (regarding systemic racism).
3. What has been your favourite FACL event or initiative so far?
The FACL Gala as it allows us to foster and create relationships with people in the bar. It is also a nice informal way to mingle with colleagues and esteemed professionals. I always enjoy listening to the speakers.
4. What advice would you give yourself if you were to go back in time?
Everything works out in the way that it is meant to. Law school and articling are stressful, but you will get to where you want to be. It is important to not listen to those that try to put you down.
