FACL Ottawa Committee

The FACL Ottawa Committee’s mandate is to bring together the local Asian legal community, highlight Asian representation and excellence, and create programming that serves the needs of Asian legal professionals and law students in the Ottawa area.

We offer opportunities for Asian Canadian lawyers and law students in the Ottawa area to network and make connections. If you are a FACL member practicing or studying law in Ottawa or its surrounding areas, please join our mailing list, email us at faclottawa@facl.ca, or reach out directly to any of our committee members, below.
