Legal Practice and Equity Conference

Legal Practice and Equity: A Conversation with the Bench, the Bar and the Faculties of Law

As it prepares for its first incoming class in 2020, the Ryerson Faculty of Law has already set out a strong commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI). EDI has become a central concern in the legal profession. At the same time, law schools are striving to offer JD programs that appeal to the full spectrum of Canadian society and expose their law students to the diverse needs and perspectives of different Canadian communities. In collaboration with a range of legal associations, the one-day conference will provide an on-the-ground look at the advancement of EDI within these various interconnected settings and professional contexts. To be held at Ryerson University in Toronto, it will welcome 150 lawyers, judges, academics and equity officers from across the country. The conference will offer professionalism hours of LSO-accredited EDI-focused programming.
The conference will be Saturday, November 2, 2019 from 8:30 am – 5:30 pm at the Ted Rogers School of Management, Ryerson University, 55 Dundas Street West in Toronto. Tickets may be purchased on the Conference Website
