This program is offered by the Ontario Bar Association and has been accredited for 2 (two) Professionalism Hours by the Law Society of Upper Canada.

Program Description:

Culture refers to the unwritten rules that dictate how a group operates, including the way in which group members relate to one another, their work, and the outside world. The culture of a law firm can produce unintended barriers for newcomers and others who may not “fit” the mold. How can you identify and “de-code” unspoken cultural rules? Can you modify the existing culture, or do you attempt to adjust and develop survival techniques? How can you understand and transform the culture as a pathway to success? What can law firms or other legal organizations do to make diversity part of their culture?

Program Chairs:

Nermine Assaad, Barrister and Solicitor
Sabrina A. Bandali, Bennett Jones LLP
Amelia Martin, Barrister and Solicitor
