We are excited to share the news that Courthouse Libraries BC is partnering with JSL law to present a panel discussion with former Chief Justice of Canada Beverley McLachlin, Judge Wolf of the BC Provincial Court, Judge St. Pierre of the BC Provincial Court and NDP leader Jagmeet Singh.
This 2-hour webinar will focus on race issues within the BC and Canadian Legal System, and the speakers will delve into some of the impacts of race on both legal professionals and people involved in court proceedings, as well as challenges in achieving diversity on the Bench.
While this session was created with a legal audience in mind, given the topic and the speakers, we expect a highly relevant and engaging discussion that would be of interest to a much broader audience, including library staff. Please join us!
Date: Thursday, August 13th
Time: 12:30 – 2:30 PDT
