  • Thanks to the 3% — Now for the Winning Numbers!

    by Nathaniel Russell | Dec 08, 2016

    Our survey of British Columbia's lawyers, discussed in more detail in this post, was a success. We met our survey target of 360 respondents—approximately 3% of the practicing lawyers in this province—and we are in the process of analyzing the feedback we received on the pains felt by today's legal professionals, and the services that Courthouse Libraries BC might be able to provide to help with the challenges.

    We are also pleased to announce the winners from our November 29, 2016 draw, which respondents to our survey were invited to enter along with lawyers who engaged via Twitter (#CLBClawyersurvey2016).

    These winners received a $100 gift card for Chapters/Indigo:

    • Andrew Roth, Terrace
    • Linda Nowlan, Vancouver
    • Geoffrey Trotter, Vancouver
    • Miles Motture, Victoria
    • Kylie Walman, Vernon

    Thanks to all who participated!
