Next fall CALE/ACEJ will hold its annual conference at the University of Victoria in beautiful British Columbia. The conference will start on the evening of Thursday, October 19 with an informal social get-together. The sessions will start on the morning of Friday, October 20 and will run to mid-day on Saturday, October 21. Our conference coordinator is Professor Pooja Parmar.
The organizers will be putting out a call for presentation proposals later in the spring. As usual we will have sessions on research, teaching and the regulation of the profession. It is not too early to start thinking about a possible topic to propose.
Registration and accommodation information will follow in the summer. For now, save the dates and start envisaging your trip to Vancouver Island.
The 2020 version of this annual conference was, for many, the last in-person professional event before the pandemic shutdown. It is wonderful to see it return in person. The 2023 conference happens in Toronto on Friday, March 31.
The panel sessions this year are titled “Lawyering in Times of Chaos and Controversy”, “Legal Ethics and Family Law: Do Unique Challenges Require New Approaches?” and “A Wake Up Call: What is the path forward for improving lawyer mental health?”. The keynote speaker is Katrina Ingram, founder of Ethically Aligned AI, who will discuss artificial intelligence and the practice of law. In addition, the CBA Ethics and Professional Responsibility Subcommittee will present Part II of its Business of Law toolkit which deals with marketing.
More information (including a list of all moderators and presenters and the opportunity to register) is available here.
