The consultation sessions being conducted by the Law Society of Upper Canada on its paper, Addressing Challenges Faced By Racialized Licensees has garnered media attention. FACL expresses the hope that with more awareness of this issue among both the legal profession and the public, we can take constructive steps to tackle the unconscious bias that many racialized licensees have reported in their experiences.
The Law Society’s next session in Toronto is on Wednesday February 25, 2015, 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Donald Lamont Learning Centre at Osgoode Hall (130 Queen Street West). The session is also available by webcast.
