FACL Endorses former FACL Director and VP External (Public), Sandra Nishikawa, in the upcoming Bencher Election

FACL is pleased to endorse Sandra Nishikawa in the upcoming Law Society of Upper Canada Bencher Election.  Sandra is a long-time advocate of equity and diversity issues, and current Chair of the Equity Advisory Group of the Law Society.  If elected as bencher, one of Sandra’s main priorities is equity and inclusion in the legal profession and giving voice to equity-seeking groups at Convocation.

Sandra was a founding member of FACL and was most recently the VP External (Public) and Director from 2012-14.  Sandra has contributed significantly to FACL over the years, as Chair of the Advocacy and Policy Committee and Scholarship Committee.  Sandra has also been a FACL mentor, and has participated in the Conference Planning Committee for a number of years.

Sandra has also devoted a large part of her career to public service.  After being called to the bar in 1999, Sandra practiced litigation at a large New York firm for four years, and then with the Department of Justice for nine years.  Since 2013, Sandra has been Counsel with the Ministry of the Attorney General, Crown Law Office Civil.
