New!! Chappell Partners LLP/June Bushell Award
Submission deadline: May 27th, 2019
This award acknowledges a lawyer who, like June Bushell, experienced and overcame adversity in pursuing a career in law and, despite that adversity, is making a positive contribution through her legal practice.
The award is open to female lawyers with 5 or more years of practice. The recipient will determine to which registered charity a donation of $1000 will be made in her name.
The Applicant’s letter to the reviewing panel should set out her circumstances and be accompanied by two letters of support/reference attesting to the challenges facing, or faced by, the Applicant and her contributions to her clients, community, or the practice of law. These documents should be sent to the WLAO by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than May 27, 2019 with the Applicant’s contact information.
The award will be presented in Toronto at the WLAO Awards night on June 12, 2019. The recipient will be invited to a luncheon with the partners of Chappell Partners LLP on a date mutually agreed upon.
