The “6 Minute Family Law” Tribute to Philip M. Epstein, O.Ont, Q.C., LSM, LL.D

Posted By Administration, 21 hours ago
Please join us online to celebrate the career of Philip Michael Epstein, his recent appointment to the Order of Ontario, receipt of an Honorary LL.D. from the Law Society of Ontario, and his contribution to family law in Canada. A distinguished group of colleagues from the bench and bar will share insights on Philip’s more well-known (and perhaps lesser-known) attributes. And Philip will have the “right of reply.”

CPD accreditation is pending for 1.5 hours of appreciation, warm-hearted ribbing, and perhaps some not-so-gentle roasting.

In honour of Phil's contributions to the profession, voluntary contributions may be directed to the Majengo Children's Home in Tanzania, an organization near to Phil's heart. Majengo is home to 95 vulnerable children between the ages of 3 and 20. Each child receives all the necessities: food, clothing, medical care, education, and love. A team of 22 local staff members care for the children and live as one big happy family. www.majengo.org

When: Aug 24, 2020 07:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Register in advance for this webinar:

He is the former Director of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association and served on the executive as Treasurer and Regional Organization Coordinator.
