Making an effective career transition between private practice, government or an in-house role requires careful planning and preparation in order to ensure that you are a strong candidate. Our speakers will be discussing their unique career transitions as mid and senior level lawyers and what prepared them for their new roles. We will be joined by three speakers:

Sarah Malik (Crown Counsel at Public Prosecution Service of Canada)
Fariya Walji (Incoming Senior Director, Law Practice Program (LPP), Toronto Metropolitan University - formerly Ryerson
