On Monday January 26th, at 1 pm, Justice Goudge will speak at Queen’s Law about the intersection between legal ethics and professionalism and the respective roles of the judiciary, lawyers and others, including Law Societies. The event has been accredited for 1.5 hours of professionalism CPD by the Law Society of Upper Canada.
