Call for New Members: Family Law Advisory Committee

August 24, 2020  
The CCLA’s newly-formed Family Law Advisory Committee is looking for members. This Committee will assist the Board in fulfilling its obligations to the members in accordance with several key objectives of the CCLA Mission Statement. The Committee’s overall mandate is to provide strategic advice and guidance to the Board of Trustees and CCLA Committees on family law-related matters within our region.

This Committee reports to the CCLA Board of Trustees. It is anticipated that the Committee will meet on a monthly basis. The Terms of Reference can be found here.

We are looking for dedicated Committee members with experience in family law. All areas (e.g. Office of the children's lawyer, child protection, legal aid, arbitration, domestic violence, mediation, multi-cultural) are welcome.

The CCLA fosters and promotes a culture of diversity and inclusion by promoting the values and principles of equality and equity in its Committee selection and programming. When choosing Committee members, the CCLA also attempts to ensure, as much as possible, that there is representation by gender, firm size, practice area, and year of call and we encourage and welcome the inclusion of judges, masters, family law service providers and paralegals from the region.

If you’re interested in joining the Committee, please send an email to Sonia Morin at smorin@ccla-abcc.ca. Tell us how you would contribute to the work, and constitution, of the Committee and provide us with a copy of your CV. Do not forget to tell us about your practice and your year of call.

The deadline for applications is September 8, 2020.

Please note: All applicants must be members in good standing of the CCLA.
